Rodin Paris, Flesh and Marble: another side to the artist

The Chapel of the Musée Rodin, where temporary exhibitions are usually held, is home to nearly 50 marble sculptures by Auguste Rodin and a dozen preparatory models in clay or plaster.

A demanding and cold medium, marble is nevertheless considered the material that is most able to represent the flesh and portray sensuality. The exhibition Rodin, Flesh and Marble includes two the marble masterpieces by this famous French artist: Danaid and The Kiss.
