Come with me and reminisce past museum visits around the world. In this episode, we are at Rodin’s Paris home on a blustery, cloudy day in January of 2014. The internal structure was under repair but the garden was available for a stroll.
Rodin’a sculptures, at least the ones I was drawn to, show a human suffering of the mind which is often reflected in the body. I would say the reverse also holds true. A lot of his figures are in tragic or “pensive” poses. His most famous, Le Penseur (The Thinker) is not my favorite. Can you guess which one is?
