- Rodin in Paris

Just coming back from an educational journey to Paris. Not very impressed by the Louvre or Musée d'Orsay .... especially after having seen art presentation in the US.

Loved the Rodin museum in Paris though - located in former Hôtel Biron. Created in 1916, thanks to Auguste Rodin’s donation of his works and his collections to the French State, it opened in 1919. Time has left its marks and the building would need some renovating work...maybe that's what makes it so authentic.

Standing in front of the THINKER is like getting in touch with the creator - for me one of the most adorable masterpieces.
