Why is Auguste Rodin the greatest sculptor of the 19th century ? Because he accurately seized this energy of the body in action without worrying about conventions and with breathing stunning life into his powerful figures.

Seeking neither the absolute likeness, nor the ideal beauty, he depicts the gesture, rhythm and impulse which reveal the variety of human expressions: the contained strength of the Thinker, the tension of the Burghers of Calais, the couple succumbing to their passion in the Kiss, the strength of the Balzac… 

Sometimes, a fragment is enough to suggest a movement, like the Walking Man bereft of his head and arms. Auguste Rodin wants to be true, and beyond appearances, restore the reality of the body.
