Rodin Museum

The Musée Rodin is a Paris museum located on Rue de Varenne, in the 7th arrondissement. The Museum is dedicated to the sculptor Auguste Rodin, who lived between the end of the nineteenth century and the beginning of the following century. The Rodin Museum is housed in the Hôtel Biron, a Rococo-style palace built in the 18th century, where the artist spent the last nine years of his life. The museum was inaugurated in 1919, two years after the sculptor's death: shortly before his death he left all the works he owned to the French state, with a request to leave them in the building to create a museum. Its vast collection consists of over seven thousand works, exhibited within the museum (18 rooms divided between the two levels of the building) & nbsp; and in the vast garden. Among the sculptor's main works, "the Kiss", "The Walking Man", "The Thinker", one of the artist's most famous works, "The Burghers of Calais" and "The Gate of Hell" stand out. Rodin worked on this last work for over 30 years, finally creating a magnificent monumental portal covered with various bas-reliefs inspired by Dante's Hell. In addition, drawings, prints, paintings from the artist's collection, as well as ceramics and photographs are also exhibited in the Rodin museum.
