4.0 out of 5 stars Great exhibition catalogue 17 April 2012
Format:Hardcover
This book was first published on the occasion of the exhibition 'Rodin' held at the Royal Academy of Arts, London (23 September 2006 - 1 January 2007) and the Kunsthaus Zürich (9 February - 13 May 2007).

This is a very nice book, of the type of coffee table book, extensively illustrated and well laid out.

It mostly comprises of two parts, a series of essays, and catalogue entries with individual explanations for most items.

It is mainly a survey project, also with relations between Rodin and Britain as a strong theme.

Catherine Lampert, Introduction: Rodin's Nature, 15
Antoinette Le Normand-Romain, 'The Greatest of Living Sculptors', 29
Antoinette Le Normand-Romain, The Gates of Hell: The Crucible, 55
Catherine Lampert, The Burghers of Calais, and the Monument to Balzac: 'My Novel', 95
Antoinette Le Normand-Romain, 'When I consider the Honours that Have Been Bestowed upon Me in England', 119
Catherine Lampert, Rodin's Drawings and Late Works: 'What to Keep and What to Sacrifice', 155

Most readable and interesting.

4.0 out of 5 stars CAMILLE 2 Jun 2007
By Neville E. Hale - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
As a Rodin researcher, I find Catharine Lampert's book extremely useful as a reference. It is very insightful in providing three-dimensional characterization, particularly to Camille Claudel who played such an important part in influencing Rodin's style in the 1880's, serving both as a detailer (hands and feet) of his own works, a model and his lover while continuing to become a better and better sculptor in her own right. The book is a beautiful publication worthy of coffee-table display. The lure of the coffee table, however should be balanced by the posible reactions of those who may flip it open towards the end. Here one finds many of his drawings. Wonderful though they and his style are in the drafting field, there are quite a number of sketches that are also extremely explicit . I would not want my grandchildren to be 'hit' by these. Buy the book by all means but be forewarned to display, or not display, according to the company that surround your coffee table.

5.0 out of 5 stars "All right, Ben. Attend me." 26 Jan 2005
By G Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
"Anybody can look at a pretty girl and see a pretty girl. An artist can look at a pretty girl and see the old woman she will become. A better artist can look at an old woman and see the pretty girl that she used to be. But a great artist-a master-and that is what Auguste Rodin was-can look at an old woman, protray her exactly as she is...and force the viewer to see the pretty girl she used to be...and more than that, he can make anyone with the sensitivity of an armadillo, or even you, see that this lovely young girl is still alive, not old and ugly at all, but simply prisoned inside her ruined body. He can make you feel the quiet, endless tragedy that there was never a girl born who ever grew older than eighteen in her heart...no matter what the merciless hours have done to her. Look at her, Ben. Growing old doesn't matter to you and me; we were never meant to be admired-but it does to them."

-Robert A. Heinlein "Stranger in a Strange Land"

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding 15 Jun 2009
By M. Hoskin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Reviewed several Rodin books before choosing this one. Our friends said it is outstanding. We shipped it overseas, which was easy and quick with Amazon. Sort of nervous sending international, but no worries.
