ABOUT THE ARTIST:

Francois August Rene Rodin was a French sculpture and considered the founder of modern sculpture.  He was educated in the arts and took a craftsman-like approach to his works. Rodin possessed a strong talent to model a complex, turbulent, and deeply pocketed surface in clay. Many of his works were harshly criticized for being so expressive and different than traditional sculpture done in the past.


WHERE TO SEE HIS WORK:

His works are in France, the UK, and other countries in Europe. But a huge collection can be seen at the Rodin Museum in Philadelphia, USA. To buy tickets, please visit here: https://rodinmuseum.org/
