Auguste Rodin, Sculptor at Work(Video)

Auguste Rodin

Auguste Rodin

The father of modern sculpture, Auguste Rodin (French, 1840-1917),  is seen working in his studio in Paris, 1915. The artist’s process  is shown close-up as he sculpts a piece in marble.

Where did I learn to understand sculpture?
In the woods by looking at the trees,
along roads by observing the formation of clouds,
in the studio by studying the model,
everywhere except in the schools.
~ Auguste Rodin

This quote by Rodin spoke to me. I’ve never done well learning to paint with art teachers. Mostly I found them closed-minded and baffled by my sense of color. No small wonder actually, given my synesthetic bent!

Synesthesia is not easily conveyed but rather, experienced. I consider myself self-taught tho spent many years in the pursuit of teachers. I completely agree with Rodin’s philosophy.

Camille Claudel, former lover and student of Auguste Rodin. Many experts believe her work was superior to her teacher’s works.

  1. Rodin has such a French face. I am always mesmerized by his eyes; perhaps Camille was as well….until she wasn’t. I love self taught people, they are often the most interesting and hardest workers.

  2. Very cool Linda. There was an exhibit recently in Fort Worth of Rodin’s work, amazing artist.

  3. When I first went to Paris the small hotel where I stayed was next to the Rodin Museum park. His work was simply mesmerizing.

    The story about Camille Claudel is one of the great tragedies of art. I’m reminded of a quote from Luke: And he said, “Truly, I say to you, no prophet is acceptable in his hometown.”

    • Hi susan… I am envious of your experiences. Isn’t it tho… As I said to Joss… She was so young when she met him. I am not surprised but when she left him, she did the most amazing work. Interesting quote! As well, true.
