Artist: Rodin, Auguste
   Auguste Rodin’s magnificent Sculptures and Illustrations come to life in this vivid documentary that simultaneously serves as a both a biography of Sculptor Auguste Rodin’s life and a narrative of his renowned artistic achievements, as we witness the rise of one of France’s premiere artists and the pitfalls that came parallel to his success.

 

Auguste Rodin (1840-1917) became one of France’s premiere artists in the later half of the 19th and beginning of the 20th centuries, making him known as the last artist before the Abstract movement. He created sculptures that were remarkably able to convey the intricate movements of his models despite the motionless limitations of the art form, and in doing so he became not only the artistic pride of his homeland, but a dedicated servant to the people of it. When he died, Rodin left his heart to the French people, his work to his country, and his legacy to artists and fans throughout the world.

 

This DVD covers the creation of famous works such as The Thinker, Balzac, The Bronze Age, Saint John The Baptist, The Walking Man, The Gates of Hell, The Kiss, The Burghers of Calais, and famous exhibitions such as The Rodin / Monet Exhibition, Cantor’s Magnificent Obsession at the Met, and The Hands of Rodin at the Brooklyn Museum. It also covers Dante’s influence on Rodin, his relationship with Rose Beuret and Camille Claudel. When Rodin was 76 years old he gave the French government the entire collection of his own works and other art objects he had acquired. They occupy the Hotel Biron in Paris as the Musee Rodin ( Rodin Museum) and are still placed as Rodin set them.
