A short walk takes us to the palatial mansion, studio, and garden of another great impressionist: Auguste Rodin. Rodin was a modern Michelangelo, sculpting human figures with powerful insight, revealing, through the body, their deepest emotions. With his groundbreaking Bronze Man, Rodin came into his own, and was recognized as an artistic force. The Kiss was the first Rodin work the public loved. Leaning slightly forward, tense and compact, every muscle working toward producing that one great thought, Man contemplates his fate.
