The Art of RodinThe Art of Rodin

Published by Art / Books.
Introduction by Louis Weinberg.

This centenary facsimile edition faithfully reproduces a 1918 volume published immediately in the wake of the death of Auguste Rodin (1840–1917), one of the first volumes on the French sculptor in the English language. With an essay by young American artist and critic Louis Weinberg, it presents almost 70 of Rodin's works in a beautifully designed, high-quality clothbound format that will appeal to a contemporary audience.

In a career that spanned the late 19th and early 20th centuries, Rodin rebelled against the idealized forms and practices of traditional art and paved the way for the birth of modern sculpture. The hallmarks of his style—its highly eroticized, sometimes explicit character, his use of incomplete figures, his emphasis on formal qualities rather than on narrative, and his desire to retain the marks of the sculptural process—were considered revolutionary at the time. As a result, his intense, evocative works courted controversy after controversy, inspiring violent hatred and ardent admiration in equal measure. By the end of his life, however, his reputation was established and he had become one of the most celebrated and sought-after artists in the world.

This book is a perfect gift, collectible and keepsake for any Rodin enthusiast or lover of modern sculpture.

Photographs by Emmanuel Berry

Published by Editions Xavier Barral.
Introduction by Hélène Pinet. Text by Marie Guillot.

Throughout his career, Rodin maintained a special relationship with the photographic medium. He was probably one of the first artists to understand the importance of photography in order to better promote his sculptures, thus leaving in his wake a vast array of documentary images and reproductions relating to his oeuvre. Writing to Edward Steichen about Steichen’s famous images of his "Monument to Balzac," Rodin said, “You will make my Balzac understood by the world through these photographs.” In this handsome slipcased volume, French photographer Emmanuel Berry interprets the expressive power of Rodin’s artworks with his gorgeous black-and-white photographic studies, scrutinizing his techniques and redeploying photography as a “cutting” tool to reveal Rodin’s work in a new light.

Auguste Rodin (1840–1917) is widely deemed the father of modern sculpture. Despite early rejection by the French art academies, he built a career focused on depicting the human form, through the use of materials such as bronze, marble, plaster and clay, and by 1900, he was a world-renowned artist. Rodin is best known for his artworks "The Kiss" (1884), "The Thinker" (1880) and "The Age of Bronze" (1876).
