This is just a tidbit to feature Auguste Rodin’s sculptures that we saw in the Rodin museum. I had viewed sculptures but, there are also many other art forms such as drawings, paintings, photography and so on.
The museum had a brisk visit day the afternoon of our visit and I had a hard time isolating the works. Many people were around the statues and that always makes it hard to photograph. Well, we try…
Here are a couple that impressed me:
The young girl in a straw hat.
The Kiss. Very famous and very adulated!
(Whew; you can catch your breath now 🙂 ).
A very life-like sculpture called: Jean d’Aire nu or nude of Jean d’Aire. I have no idea who he is.
Close up of the head of the previous statue.
And probably the most famous one, the Thinker:
An aerial shot to cut out the groups below his pedestal. Yes, you have to get your picture next to the Thinker…

Hoping that you enjoyed! If you are curious you can try the museum’s website in English: http://www.musee-rodin.fr/en
See you on Friday for something special that is under wraps until then….
