About this title


Auguste Rodin (1840-1917), the famous French sculptor, knew that objects depend both on light and on shadow for their existence. In this book, we introduce young readers to some of Rodin’s sculptures molded from clay, wax, or plaster and cast in bronze during Rodin’s lifetime. Learn about each of the sculptures and why the artist designed them to be viewed up close and bathed in different intensities of brightness, from subtle shade to vibrant sunshine. Explore the text, moving through it in any way you wish, and you’ll understand how this artist saw the world, and the people around him, during the time he was creating these great works. You will also discover how you can see the world differently through individual creative expression.
