About the artist
Auguste Rodin was born on November 12, 1840, in Paris and is considered one of the greatest and most prolific sculptors of the 19th and 20th centuries. His artworks were so innovative and non-conventional that Parisian art critics initially denounced them. Despite these rejections, Rodin's works were well received outside of France and eventually won the recognition of his countrymen. He would later attain international fame and forever be considered by many as the Michelangelo of his time. He alone inspired a distinct style of sculpture and art that held true to the roots of western art - the perfection of the human figure.Go to Rodin's profile ›
