Format: Paperback
This book was definitely informative and complete. But what I found most compelling about it was the author's poetic tone. It was refreshing to be so enchanted by a biography; sometimes they can be awfully dry. The subject of Rodin and his work is, of course, irresistable. But, I really felt this book was a page turner because of the eloquent writing.

A beautifully prepared work. Well written, with stunning black and white pohotos of Rodin's major works. The writing is very elegant, yet simple and elegant. A must for any collector or any one interested in Rodin.

Champigneulle's RODIN is a very informative, chronological account of Rodin's life as an artist, packed with an excellent selection of plates illustrating his work. The text is clearly presented, well-organized and very well supported by well-placed illustrations.

w/ plenty of illustrations that outlines the life and genius behind some of Rodin's work. I wish, however, the author would of went into more detail on some aspects of his life...

He doesn't spend much time on his childhood and goes very briefly over his relationship w/ Claudel. Overall, though, he does a good job portraying the personality of Auguste Rodin.
