Rodin's art : the Rodin collection of the Iris & B. Gerald Cantor Center for Visual Arts at Stanford University by Albert Edward Elsen ( Book )
10 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 1,065 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
