The publication contains examples from his early days as a struggling artist to his mature and most successful works. The majority of the bronzes are lifetime casts by the sculptor, making this collection a rare and significant body of Rodin's output. A related group of plaster models and fragments augment these major pieces, adding to the scope and breadth of this volume. Showcasing beautiful new photography of more than fifty of Rodin's most iconic artworks alongside an illuminating essay, this book will delight and surprise readers with its novel insights into one of the greatest sculptors in art history.
