Rodin (1840-1917)
For a long time the life of the sculptor Rodin was marked by the mixed reactions his work provoked with the audience. The lack of understanding for Rodin's work was partly due to the original character of his art. He felt little for the strict formats of Romanticism and neither did he want to identify himself with the neutrality of the Impressionist. Rodin's work is characterized by a passion for the human body and he considered himself incapable of any creativity if he did not have a living model in front of him.

Rodin's life upheld this belief with a vast succession of lovers having passed his artistic eye. Many affairs were brief, but one of them turned out to be of enormous value to his later work: Camille Claudel. This self-willed, fierce woman, who was very talented sculptor herself, inspired him to create his most famous and admired sculptures.
