Riassunto: The greatest sculptor of the nineteenth century discusses his philosophy of life with a close friend in this fascinating and informative artistic testament. Auguste Rodin spoke candidly to his protégé, Paul Gsell, who recorded the master's thoughts not only about the technical secrets of his craft, but also about its aesthetic and philosophical underpinnings.
Here is the real Rodin—relaxed, intimate, open, and charming—offering a wealth of observations on the relationship of sculpture to poetry, painting, theater, and music. He also makes perceptive comments on Rembrandt, Michelangelo, Raphael, and other great artists, and he shares revealing anecdotes about Hugo, Balzac, and others who posed for him. Seventy-six superb illustrations of the sculptor's works complement the text, including St John the Baptist Preaching, The Burghers of Calais, The Thinker, and many others, along with a selection of exuberant drawings and prints.
Sinossi: In an intimate talk with his protégé, the great sculptor offers candid, wide-ranging comments on a diverse range of topics: the meaning of art; other famed artists; the relationship of sculpture to poetry, painting, and music; his philosophy of life; and much more. Seventy-six black-and-white illustrations of Rodin's sculptures, drawings, and prints are included.
