Dieu, i had to return to see these sculptures again. it’s remarkable the Rodin could create such delicate sensuality, for as hard a surface as marble is.
and thank you for liking so many of my words lately, it really means a lot to me. 🙂
I like what I like, and your words I particularly like! And yes, Rodin is a true genius to be able to make something that is hard and lifeless into something so alive.
So beautiful proportions and fascinating bodies…very nice shot!
I hope you have a nice day!
thank you for these magnificent images, Dieu. i was not at all familiar with the second sculpture, poetry in marble.
You are very welcome!
His sculptures were so beautiful. All I ever wanted to do at the Musée Rodin was reach out and touch the skin of his subjects, which looked so perfect (“smooth as monumental alabaster”). It’s astonishing really – you can see the muscles under the skin, all there, all in the right place… You can see the movement even. What a master.
I took some pictures when I was there too, but nothing compared to these. The first one especially is perfect.
Aww, thank you. I’m glad you like the photos. I took photos of everything at the Musee Rodin, but these two are my favourites. I agree with you. I can’t believe a human being can turn stone to something so alive.
