Rodin sculptures by Auguste Rodin( Book )

Beside the French painters of the 'Great Generation' from Manet to Cézanne stands a solitary sculptor, who ranks equally with them: Auguste Rodin. In his two studios, one hidden in a monastery crypt in Paris and the other exposed to the sun and air on the Meudon hills, the Master surrounded himself with Egyptian, Greek and Gothic sculptures. And this most modern of all sculptors drew in fact upon the traditions of all great epochs. Some of his works have nothing to fear from comparison with the masterpieces of Greek art or with the sculptures of Michelangelo. The impressive shape of the Thinker, the pathetic group of the Burghers of Calais on their way to sacrifice, the Balzac Memorial with the head towering like a gigantic summit upon a mountainous body -- these are his masterpieces. He created also some of the most impressive portraits of our century, such as the busts of Shaw, Victor Hugo, Gustav Mahler and Clemenceau, and marvelous portraits of women. -- Inside jacket flap

A stunning collection of photographs of the legendary sculptor's masterpieces. Auguste Rodin (1840-1917) is the only sculptor of equal rank who can be placed alongside the finest painters of his generation such as great French painters as Manet and Cézanne. While he has been considered an early Modernist among sculptors, he drew on a uniquely rich variety of artistic traditions, including those of ancient Greece, Egypt, the Far East and the Renaissance. This classis monograph, first published in 1939, gathers together a stunning collection of photographs, all specially commissioned for this edition, that depict Rodin's masterpieces in great detail. We are able to contemplate the momentous presence of The Thinker, the powerfully melancholy of The Burghers of Calais and outstanding portrait busts of the last century. This monograph is itself a special work: not solely on account of Rodin's legendary sculpture, but also because of its incredibly competitive price given quality and elegance of the edition
