Who is Auguste Rodin? 

Francois Auguste Rene Rodin (1849 - 1917) was a French sculptor and the founder of modern sculpture. He had a unique ability to mould and model complex surfaces in clay. He faced criticism for his creations. His work didn’t reflect the established tastes of the art world that was inclined to decorative traditions and traditional themes (mythology and allegory). Rodin instead adopted a new approach to the practice of sculpture. He celebrated naturalism, individual characters, and masculine and feminine physicality.

Michelangelo, the Italian Renaissance artist, inspired Rodin’s works. You can see this in his sculptures like Adam and The Bronze Age at the museum. Sculptures to keep an eye for at Rodin sculpture garden Paris include The Thinker, Monument to Balzac, The Kiss, and The Gates of Hell.

 Rodin Museum Layout

Rodin Museum stands today because the artist donated his artworks to the French State. Rodin himself chose the site for the Rodin Museum. Let’s take a closer look at what you can expect in the two main areas- Sculpture Garden and Hotel Biron.

  • Sculpture Garden: Experience the harmony of sculptures with nature at Rodin Sculpture Garden. Enjoy the best works of Rodin like The Thinker and The Gates of Hell in this natural landscape. Here you'll find flowers blooming throughout the year. Roses in winter, viburnum in February, and forsythia and ceanothus in March. The garden is also an ideal spot to just enjoy a calm moment.
  • Hotel Biron: Hotel Biron is an eighteenth-century mansion. It is home to the permanent collections of the French sculptor. Eighteen rooms display clay sketches, plaster casts and bronze, and marble sculptures. Through some of his early career works on display, you can follow Rodin’s artistic evolutions. Some pieces earned him the reputation as the first of the ‘moderns’.
