Le Musée Rodin
Discover Le Musée Rodin in the heart of Paris, France.
This museum, dedicated to the works of French sculptor Auguste Rodin, opened in 1919. Many of Rodin’s sculptural masterpieces can be enjoyed in the musée itself or one can take a tour of the garden, where lush trees and thoughtfully placed footpaths lead to some of Rodin’s most famous works.
Rodin’s style was different to other sculptors of the time. Rodin practiced a strict antiquity-style of neo classic sculpture. He forged a path to become one of the founders of modern sculpture. Rodin’s inspiration came from everyday people and their interactions, rather than godly figures or muses that were more commonly featured in sculpture. Along with modern themes of love, thought and the human body, Rodin’s rough artistic approach was complemented by the materials he used such as bronze, which allowed him to showcase the restlessness and movement of the subjects he was sculpting.
Rodin’s most famous works include The Kiss (1884), The Thinker (1880), and The Age of Bronze (1876).
Rodin is celebrated for his ability to make the brute materiality of sculpture express the fleeting mobility of the modern individual. Rodin had an eye for nature and expressing emotion in his work.
Auguste Rodin’s intriguing works and the beautifully appointed architectural museum, Le Musée Rodin come to life in our winter collection of the same name.
Our vibrant Shirring Midi Dress is your solution for bright winter style. Featuring the intricate paisley print of our new collection, this colourful dress has a fashionable blouson sleeve, hidden side pockets and a swing hem.
