‘Born of poor parents in Paris in 1840, he had finished schooling when he was about 17…’
The brilliant French sculptor, Auguste Rodin, died on 17 November 1917 – he was 77.
To commemorate the life of the man who gave us such famous sculptures as ‘Le Penseur’ and ‘Le Kiss’, here is a newspaper tribute to Rodin.
