Preserving Rodin

Musée Rodin

At the initiative of sculptor Auguste Rodin, the Rodin Museum was created in 1919 to house his collections, library, letters and manuscripts, including The Thinker, The Kiss, and The Gates of Hell, along with paintings by Vincent van Gogh, Claude Monet, and Pierre-Auguste Renoir. The museum's library, made up of more than 25,000 documents, gives visitors a rare opportunity to study the life of Rodin and his contemporaries.

Rodin lived in Meudon the last 20 years of his life, which now serves as an annex to the museum. It is here that visitors have the opportunity to discover the studio and the place where Rodin lived and worked, while ancient sculptures are waiting to be discovered in the luscious park surrounding the house, giving guests a clearer understanding of the different stages of the creative journey of Rodin.
