The Rodin Museum
The newly renovated Musée Rodin, which reopened just last autumn, offers a Parisian stroll amidst magnificence that should not be missed by anyone who values artistic creativity. There has been a complete redesign of the museum’s layout, furnishings and lighting, presenting the master’s works in a fresh perspective while preserving the ambience that is so special to the Hotel Biron, a jewel of Parisian rocaille architecture that was first listed as an historic monument in 1926. In the intimacy of this mid-18th century building bathed in natural light, the sculptures created by Rodin and Camille Claudel share space with more than 200 paintings, the most famous of which is probably The Rocks at Belle-Ile by Monet. All this serves as an evocation of the taste of Auguste Rodin, and the breath-taking genius that the sculptor shared with his peers. The gardens of the Hotel Biron cover an area of 3 hectares in the centre of the capital, and here amidst the roses, lawns and arbours you’ll discover, as you stroll along, many masterpieces by this legendary artist.
