Auguste Rodin (1840-1917)
In remembrance of the 100th anniversary of Auguste Rodin’s death, ArtNexus presents a video about the artist’s home-museum in Paris.

Rick Steves, the video’s producer, defines Rodin as the “modern Michelangelo” who sculpted figures with great acuity, revealing the deepest emotions through their bodies.

The Museum, located inside the home where the artist lived and worked, showcases Rodin’s completed works in marble and bronze, ranging from early, Belle-Époque sculptures to works that challenged accepted themes in the art of the era and consolidated his personal style.
