Rodin and van Gogh

Le Penseur

Spain defeats Germany 1-0, advances to its first World Cup final on Sunday against the Netherlands.

They couldn’t do it but is glad someone else beat Germany. Spanish flags were sold on the streets of Paris and the cafes were all packed, smokes, thunderous cheers when Spain scored the only goal.
I think I’m going to die for second hand smoking in Europe.

Made it to the Rodin museum again. It was a hot day – there wasn’t a single cloud in the sky. London was 22 degrees .. .. guess we took the warm weather with us to Paris.

The Musée Rodin is very intimate, housed in his former residence – the Hôtel Biron. Obviously he enjoyed his fruits.

Rodin used the Hôtel Biron as his residence from 1908, and subsequently donated his entire collection of sculptures (along with paintings by Vincent van Gogh and Pierre-Auguste Renoir that he had acquired) to the French State on the condition that they turn the building into a museum dedicated to his works.
