Auguste Rodin: One of the fathers of modern sculpture
René François Auguste Rodin, born in Paris on November 12, 1840 and died in Meudon on November 17, 1917, is one of the most important French sculptors of the second half of the 19th century, considered one of the fathers of modern sculpture. Heir to centuries of humanism, the realistic art of Rodin is a result, a cross between Romanticism and Impressionism, the sculpture of which is shaped by the struggle between form and light. Through his capacity for work and organization, Rodin leaves behind an extraordinary work, of which only the Rodin Museum in Paris holds the moral and inalienable right of the sculptor.
