This was my last photo shoot of 2011 at the Rodin museum in Paris.
Sometimes I like to go and tour a museum. Even if I am not an artsy blogger, I do like to appreciate art. The Rodin museum was the winning ticket on a chilly and drizzly December day. I took in the ambiance as I went through the gardens:
A cute couple hugging each other while they admire a sculpture in the garden.
What stirred up that couple so much? The huge sculpture below:
Presenting “la Porte de l’Enfer/ The gates of Hell”. It is depicting a scene from the Inferno, from Dante Alighieri’s Divine Comedy.
A person under an umbrella admiring “Les Bourgeois de Calais/ The Burghers of Calais”.
Just a footnote of this statue; there are 12 other cast iron versions of the Burghers in various countries around the world ( such as South Korea, USA or Denmark).
Other figures strike their pose with the gilded dome of Les Invalides in the background.
I will present you a few masterpieces from inside the museum this week. See you soon!
