Rodin was a traditionally trained 19th-century French artist, and one of the most famous sculptors known today. Despite being denied admission to the Grand École, one of the most prestigious art schools in France, Rodin was quickly recognised for his extraordinary talents and gained immense popularity in his lifetime. His works are considered the forerunners to modern sculptures, and are praised for their incredible realism and passion. Here we explore the best places to view his works.
The Jardin des Tuileries is one of Paris’ most celebrated parks, and is constantly filled with locals and tourists taking strolls around the greenery, picnicking or admiring the numerous public sculptures. The garden has an excellent, albeit small, selection of Rodin’s works, including the infamous Le Baiser (‘The Kiss’) (1882-1889), remarkable for its intense and empowered portrayal of female sensuality and eroticism. Other than Rodin’s work the visitors can also enjoy Antoine Coysevox, Louis Auguste Lévêque, Jules Ramey and Louis-Ernest Barrias’ sculptures, making the Jardin des Tuileries an art lover’s paradise.
