Undoubtedly the most famous of the converted ateliers in central Paris, the Musée Rodin is filled with the works of the most preeminent sculptor of the 19th and early 20th centuries, including Le Penseur and Le Baiser. From 1908, Rodin rented several rooms on the ground floor of the Hôtel Biron, a spectacular mansion in the exclusive Faubourg Saint-Germain, in which he stored and created his sculptures. Shortly thereafter, he began petitioning the government to convert it into a museum of his work and his wish was granted a year before his death in 1917.
