Rodin has made the work of the mind palpable. an image of a man meditating: of the human who, in a convulsive effort to rise above animal life, is inspired by a mysterious illumination, and gives birth to the first thought.. Donatello

Auguste Rodin St. John the Baptist 1878

What distinguishes Rodin is his supreme control of surfaces Modelling is the reflection of life. Rodin is the most direct heir to Michelangelo because of the

physicality of his figures and to Donatello because of the psychological realism he communicates.

Rome to study the classical models and the work of Michelangelo. Michelangelo

1885-1896 The Burghers of Calais 1895

In 1347 King Edward III had besieged the French town of Calais for nearly a year, and by early August its starved population

could not hold out any longer. Edward III then told the people of Calais that they would all be killed, unless six of its citizens presented themselves to the King, dressed

only in their shirts, with a rope around their necks, and with the keys to the city in their hands. Rodin centered The Burghers of Calais around a modern version of

heroism that can be termed civic heroism', which draws on the collective and civic courage of the average person, rather than on the physical courage of the single and

outstanding individual. Or, to put it differently, Rodin turned the statue into a democratic exemplum ( Richard Swedberg in Theory, Culture and Society, 2005).

Honor de Balzac 20 May 1799 18 August 1850 Due to his keen observation of detail and unfiltered representation of

society, Balzac is regarded as one of the founders of realism in European literature. He is renowned for his multifaceted characters, who are complex, morally ambiguous and

fully human. His writing influenced many subsequent novelists. Auguste Rodin Monument to Balzac

18911898 As form followed form, Rodins vision slowly grew. And at last he saw Balzac: a substantial figure, striding

powerfully forwards, its heaviness counteracted by the fall of the coat. The hair weighed down the powerful neck, and from the mass of hair there gazed a face intoxicated with its own

vision, a face that boiled with creative energy: the fact of an elemental force. This was Balzac in in all the fullness of his productive powers, the founder of generations, the waster of fates

This was how Rodin saw Balzac in the moment of intense concentration and tragic exaggeration, and this is how he created him. The image did not fade: it came into being.
