Auguste Rodin (1840-1917) is the only sculptor of equal rank who can be placed alongside the finest painters of his generation such as great French painters as Manet and C#65533;zanne. While he has been considered an early Modernist among sculptors, he drew on a uniquely rich variety of artistic traditions, including those of ancient Greece, Egypt, the Far East and the Renaissance.

This classis monograph, first published in 1939, gathers together a stunning collection of photographs, all specially commissioned for this edition, that depict Rodin's masterpieces in great detail. We are able to contemplate the momentous presence of The Thinker , the powerfully melancholy of The Burghers of Calais and outstanding portrait busts of the last century.

This monograph is itself a special work: not solely on account of Rodin's legendary sculpture, but also because of its incredibly competitive price given quality and elegance of the edition.
