Rodin at Stanford

Auguste Rodin (1840-1917) is one of my favored artists. The Musée Rodin was one of the places I hit once I was in Paris, well before Louvre. It’s more manageable (size wise) and personable: my private art teacher in Beijing loved him, showed us one of few books she had. Stanford’s Cantor holds the largest in the world outside Paris, second only to the Musee Rodin. More than 50 works by Rodin are on view inside the Center, mostly cast bronze. Every time I visited Stanford, Cantor is sure on my map. Some of his sculptures are very sensual and provocative.
