The artist

Auguste Rodin (1840-1917)

Auguste Rodin is considered to be the father of modern sculpture. Between scandals and shocks, he revolutionized artistic creation before Braque, Picasso or Matisse, and made it forever fall into modernity. He will reach an extraordinary posterity with generations of artists, from Carpeaux to Richier, Bourdelle, Claudel, Brancusi or Picasso.
