Auguste Rodin (1840-1917) was the foremost sculptor of the nineteenth century, creating such iconic, profoundly expressive works as The Kiss, The Thinker and The Gates of Hell. In this engaging monograph Jane Mayo Roos gives an informative overview of the life and works of Rodin, and treats all his major works in their biographical, social and historical context.

From his early sculptures made during his pursuit of recognition by the arts establishment to his high-profile portraits and public commissions, numerous illustrations present Rodins works in situ and in detail. They are accompanied by drawings and contemporary photographs of maquettes and of the artist with his work. The greatest sculptures, including The Burghers of Calais and portraits of Victor Hugo and Honore de Balzac are thoroughly examined through accounts of their commission, design and making.

A highly readable introduction that will also appeal to specialists for its breadth and insights, and provides an enlightening profile of this passionate artist.
