Library Journal: "A one-man Rodin industry, Elsen (Art History, Stanford) has written several books on the father of modern sculpture; and this is his second on ``The Gates of Hell.'' In the present richly illustrated volume, Elsen tells the story of the creation of the gates from the first preliminary drawings through their successive metamorphoses. Included are a panel-by-panel illustrated tour of the gates and a concluding chapter on Rodin's time. Free of the usual art historical cant, this is a very readable contribution containing much material of general interest on Rodin's emergence as one of the great sculptors of world history." -- Raymond L. Wilson, Humanities Department, San Francisco State University

Thorough a combination of primary source materials, excerpts from professional and art journals and extensive textual notes, this work presents a thorough analysis of, inter alia: the fate of works of art in wartime; the international trade in stolen and illegally exported cultural property; artistic freedom, censorship and state support for art and artists; copyright, droit moral and droit de suite; the artist's professional life and death; collectors and the art market; income and estate taxation; charitable donations of works of art, and art museums and their collections. Art world professionals, including practising and academic lawyers, the art trade, art administrators, museum trustees and staff, art historians, archaeologists and art collectors will find this book of value."--Jacket
Rodin's art : the Rodin collection of the Iris & B. Gerald Cantor Center for Visual Arts at Stanford University by Albert E Elsen( Book )

12 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and Undetermined and held by 632 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The late Albert Elsen was the first American scholar to study seriously the work of the French sculptor Auguste Rodin, and the person most responsible for a revival of interest in the artist as a modern innovator - after years during which the sculpture had been dismissed as so much Victorian bathos. After a fortuitous meeting with the financier, philanthropist, and art collector B. Gerald Cantor, Elsen helped Cantor build a major collection of Rodin's work. A large part of this collection, consisting of more than two hundred works, was donated to Stanford University's museum by Mr. Cantor, who died in 1996. In size, Stanford's collection is surpassed only by the Musee Rodin in Paris and rivaled only by the collection in Philadelphia. In scope, the collection is unique in having been carefully selected to present a balanced view of Rodin's work throughout his life." "Rodin's Art encompasses a lifetime's thoughts on Rodin's career, surveying the artist's accomplishments throughout the detailed discussion of each object in the collection. Its essays on the formation of the collection, the reception of Rodin's work, and his casting techniques are invaluable. The other entries, arranged topically, include extensive discussion of Rodin's major projects."--Jacket
