Auguste Rodin (1840-1917) was a French sculptor. Born in Paris, Rodin attended art school at a young age, but unable to advance to a higher education in art, he spent much of his early life working as a craftsman, doing decorative, architectural work. It wasn't until receiving a modest museum commission in 1880 that he was able to dedicate himself to his own art full-time.
By 1900, his dominating artistic career was well-established. A prodigious worker, he remains best known for singular sculptures like The Thinker and The Kiss and his monuments to French writers HonorAAEAA(c) de Balzac and Victor Hugo.
While Rodin's works can be found in museum collections and on public display in cities around the world, the MusAAEAA(c)e Rodin--opened in Paris in his former residence in 1919--continues to hold the largest single collection of the artist's work.
