The Making of Rodin

In line with new thinking around Rodin, this beautifully illustrated book focuses specifically on the artist’s use of plaster, a material which was crucial to his process, but also demonstrates his interest in creating sculptures that are never finished, always becoming.

Auguste Rodin (1840–1917) was a radical sculptor whose unorthodox approach to multiplication, assemblage, industrial production, and serial repetition challenged classical sculptural traditions and provided a definitive break in the history of art. Although he was best known for his bronze and marble sculptures, Rodin’s genius was as a modeler who captured movement, emotion, light, and volume in pliable materials such as clay and plaster. A stockpile of plaster body parts allowed him to experiment and explore infinite groupings and poses. Unlike his predecessors, his finished works include traces of their creation, challenging conventional conceptions of beauty. In line with new thinking around Rodin, this beautifully illustrated book focuses specifically on the artist’s use of plaster, a material which was crucial to his process, but also demonstrates his interest in creating sculptures that are never finished, always becoming. Hardcover, 292 pages.
