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.

This book contains many wonderful pieces, as well as providing details of Rodin's life during the time he created these enchanting works. I love to turn each page, because his collection always remain fresh and exciting...Jasmine
