1840-1917, most important sculptor of the transition period from the 19th to the 20th century.

François-Auguste is considered brilliant innovator of sculpture and is one of the greatest sculptors of all time besides Praxiteles, Canova, Michelangelo and Cellini. His sculptural work is so extensive that to this day still appeared no complete catalogue of his works. He would certainly include several hundred pages.

Rodin studied at the school for applied arts, as he was rejected three times at the Paris School of art. Rodin was an ardent admirer of beauty. The human body captivated him, which he immortalized repeatedly in his "Vérité Fugitive" in the fleeting moment of the moment: lively, vibrant beauty that took shape under his creative hands. Whatever Rodin created with his hands, radiates immense vitality and untamed power.

His sculptures with often fractured surfaces ushered in a new era of sculpture. The genius of Rodin's modern design language, which was expressed with elements of impressionism, left the monument-like pose of academic style and mental constitutions could be alive in the moving surfaces, had to be recognized :"Boldness of light – modesty of the shadow" - Rodin wrote this dialogue of increases and cuts in the 'skin' of his sculptures. Flickering highlights and mysterious shadows animate his characters and make them alive: "Sculpture is the art to represent the forms in the play of light and shadow."
