Auguste Rodin by Robert Descharnes( Book )

29 editions published between 1967 and 1987 in 4 languages and held by 508 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Rodin is one of the greatest sculptors of all time. His fame is equal to that of Michelangelo. His life was an unceasing fight to open up new directions for modern sculpture. Most of the artistic movements of the twentieth century have their origin in his work. Towards the end of his life, Rodin appealed to the young in these moving terms: "The battle must go on." The first chapter is entitled Rodin's Struggle. It relates the war he had to wage for the freedom of the artist and for boldness in creation. The second chapter deals with The Artist, his Life and Work. The most significatn events in his artistic activity are set out in a Chronology. His finest sculptures are reproduced. The book, distributed in 84 countries, met with very enthusiastic reception from the Press"--Back cover

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
