Auguste Rodin

Auguste Rodin was an influential French sculptor, born to a working-class family in Paris in 1840. His reputation grew slowly, but by 1900 he was known throughout the world. He approached the human form with a realism unusual at the time. He was a prolific artist, whose most famous works include ‘The Burghers of Calais', ‘The Thinker', ‘The Kiss' and ‘The Prodigal Son'.
