Anna Tahinci

The collectors of Rodin's sculptures in his lifetime


Doctoral dissertation, defended at the university of Paris I, Panthéon-Sorbonne in February 2002. 

"Our thesis examines the identity and characteristics of the collectors of Auguste Rodin’s (1840-1917) sculptures in his lifetime. Through the examination of their choices, our research explores the taste of an era. The name of Rodin's patrons is today forgotten, even if they were important personalities of the artistic, literary, scientific or financial world of the end of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th century. Our research clarifies their identity, personality and importance in Rodin's artistic career.

The collectors' diversity (some of them are amateurs, some of them patrons) has allowed us to draw a real typology of the figure of the collector of Rodin's sculptures and to study the sculptor as a collected artist. The study of the commissions allowed us to focus on the collectors' choices and their importance in the history of taste. While studying their acquisitions and commissions, we examined the role of intermediaries between Rodin and his clientele. Moreover, we examined the way private collectors contributed to the enrichment of public collections. We finally focused on the human relationship that Rodin developed with his collectors."
