Paris: Musee Rodin

Musee Rodin is the former estate of Auguste Rodin, a famous French sculptor who is also considered the progenitor of modern sculpture. The museum contains many works by Rodin but also by others such as Van Gogh and Renoir.

The gardens at the estate are gorgeous!

Gates of Hell

Why people take pictures of themselves smiling in front of the Gates of Hell, I will never know.

We did not.


However, we did enjoy Rodin's magnificent accomplishments.

There was lots of amazing sculptures by Rodin both inside the house and out in the gardens. Here are just a few that are inside the home.
