Musée Rodin, Paris

The Musée Rodin in Paris is dedicated to the life and work of the French sculptor Auguste Rodin. The museum's collection encompasses many of his sculptures, including some of his best-known works such as "The Thinker" or "The Kiss", along with less well-known parts of his oeuvre such as drawings, ceramics, or copperplate engravings. In addition, works from his private art collection, including paintings by Vincent van Gogh or Auguste Renoir and antiques from his estate are part of the museum's collection.

The building where the museum is located today, dating back to the early 18th century, also has a direct connection to Rodin's biography. He had lived and worked here since 1908. In exchange for a lifelong right of residence, he offered the French state the collections that can be exhibited today - under the additional condition that a museum bearing his name was to be established in this building. In 1919, in accordance with his wishes, the Musée Rodin was opened to the public, along with the garden, which is well worth seeing.

The originals of the artworks shown here are on display at the Musée Rodin.
