TheAnitaAlvarez My Art History professor told us her story and I‘ve never been able to see Rodin‘s work with the same eyes 5y
RowReads1 @TheAnitaAlvarez Yep! Men were/are allowed to be womanizing eccentric artists and not have their fame tarnished. 5y
tournevis I think I read that bio in French, like three decades ago. Not sure... 5y
RowReads1 @tournevis Could very well be. It‘s pretty old now. Its been on the book shelves in our house pretty much my whole life. 5y

Pickpick

13/52-3/5 - I did enjoy reading this book but it was a challenge. It was published in 1920 & it is a reprint, but there are no images, chapters or headings. It was written by Rilke, the poet & good friend of Rodin & the language is beautiful. Fortunately, I have seen a lot of Rodin‘s sculptures so I could make the necessary connections. I‘m looking forward to finishing the book “you must change your life” which is about Rodin & Rilke‘s friendship.

Keeping with my Paris theme, I hope to finish reading this little gem about Rodin using my bookmark of The Thinker this evening. You may also notice the painting of Paris in the background that I bought from a street vendor Montmartre. Who knew a tomboy like me that grew up in an eastern KY coal mining town would grow up fascinating by art and international travel.

Reading about Rodin as written by his dear friend Rilke, the poet, with the perfect bookmark “The Thinker”. Just another lovely Saturday morning.

I did it again! I purchased a new book and started reading it before I finished the book that I just purchased two days ago. I‘m seeing a Rodin exhibit in Pennsylvania this weekend. Although I‘ve been in love with his sculptures and I‘ve seen several exhibits including his museum in Paris, I‘ve never actually read a lot about him. I‘m going enjoy this book immensely.

Abailliekaras I don't know much about Rilke, except I think I read in Stefan Zweig's memoir that he was monastic and particular, and if you lent him a book he would return it beautifully wrapped in tissue paper. I really like that image! 5y
Tjackson Only 10% into the book right now and I have learned so much about Rodin! I think I am going to like learning about them and their friendship. 5y

Rodin's Lover: A Novel | Heather Webb
Mehso-so

There were many parts of the story I enjoyed, I often paused to research the works mentioned, Claudel had some amazing pieces and what was more impressive was the obstacles she faced being a woman in the male-dominated art world. Where the story fell flat for me was Claudel herself. I don't know if the author took liberties with her character, making her unlikable by other women (and the reader), but it made me limp through the book.
