Centennial celebration at the Musée Rodin
Meudon and Paris - November 17, 2017
Right where Rodin last sat...
potent words were spoken,
lovely singing filled Rodin's studio,
and around The Thinker where the master's State Funeral was held on November 24, 1917
children laid roses on the tomb of Auguste Rodin and Rose Beuret.
Merci Monsieur Rodin!
I was very moved to share this moment with eminent Rodin scholar Jérôme Le Blay.
Au revoir Meudon, see you again soon....
The Musée Rodin decided to cast this model in bronze in celebration of the centennial of the master. I will present this work extensively in a dedicated entry, but I couldn't resist sharing a first glance here.
At nightfall we were invited to the first floor of the Hotel Biron, where overlooking the gardens
we were treated with a spectacular show of lights and fireworks.
Merci de tout coeur Catherine Chevillot!
Vive la sculpture! Vive Rodin!
