Created by Isamu Noguchi in 1986, the Lillie & Hugh Roy Cullen Sculpture Garden at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston contains 20 sculptures: Rodin, Matisse, Bourdelle, Maillol and others.

The Museum owns one of the twelve casts of the enlarged version of the Walking Man, authorized by the Musée Rodin and based on the enlarged plaster version fabricated by Rodin and Henri Lebossé in 1905.

The first model dates from 1877, as a study for St John the Baptist Preaching. In their conversations, Rodin and Paul Gsell discussed how this sculpture suggests movement by showing various elements of a stride at the same time.
