This is a great website. I have been looking and looking for information on Head of Lust and was at least able to find a mention of it here. For some reason, it is one of those bronzes for which it is very difficult to find any information. I also have been looking for visual examples of foundry marks that were used but I guess this becomes a real issue because of forgers. thanks, Mike Z

I love sculpture, expecially Michelangelo (honestly as first) and than Rodin . I spent so much time at Rodin- museum in Paris that I had no time to see the Eiffel tower . And I am sorry that does'nt exist any web page for Michelangelo similar to your great site . People interested in art and usual to spend their holiday in campingsite may be interested to visit my site.

Hi! I would like to do just a little comment... why you don't have the Works ready?? This his the only web that was supposed to help me doing an essay about Rodin's works and it didn't! Actually the web is OK but you should have the Works ready by now... I hope the next time I visit the web the Works will be ready... Sorry if I seem angry or rude but I have to finish the essay and I don't have enough information! And sorry if my English is not correct but I'm from Spain!

Dear Hans, 

It is with great interest that I visited the RODIN-WEB website : Congratulations for your great work! 

It might be extremely useful to add a special section on "Ongoing research" with Master's and/or Ph.D. on Rodin. I defended my Ph.D. dissertation on "The collectors of Rodin's sculptures during his lifetime" at the university of Paris I, Panthéon-Sorbonne in 2002. 

In the Books section, you might want to add "Rodin : The Zola of Sculpture", edited by Professor Claudine Mitchell and published by Ashgate Publishing Company, 2004. 
I'll be in touch for future announcements. 

Best regards, 

Dr. Anna Tahinci

Dear Anna,

Thank you for your nice comment and suggestions, I will follow it up and maybe create an extra "blackboard" to post info on current research. Originally, the Rodin Peer Network at Yahoo Groups was created for this purpose, but these members are not very active, mostly remain anonymous. And there has been some SPAM nuisance recently, so I have to filter posted messages anyway now.

You are very welcome to supply more background info on your research and your person, we could create an extra article, like the text on Jacques de Caso. Just send me your proposal by email and we will publish it in the Rodin-Web!

I'm a seventh grade student in America. I am working on an art report on Rodin. 
In my report, I am talking about his work, the "Gates of Hell." Do you know the size of it and where it is located today? Was it made first made of plaster then bronze?
Any additional thoughts you might have would be appreciated. 
Thank you for your time.

There exists a beautiful aquatinta print in a limited edition issued by Klett Cotta publishers in
Stuttgart, which was issued together with a book by Hélene Pinet about Rodin and his photographers. The price of the book together with the print was about 100 Euros. The book is not for sale anymore, but maybe Klett Cotta still has one copy left for you.

I am trying to track the progress of the proposed deal between the MacLaren Art Gallery in Barrie and Gruppo Mondiale Est. The deal would see the MacLaren take possession of 510 Rodin pieces. The MacLaren says it has title documents for the art, but not possession of the art. Gruppo Mondiale has told us through its Canadian lawyer that it has not yet been paid for the art. Can you shed any further light on this complicated deal?

Dear Mr de Roos,

I have just visited your web site and I must say what a fantastic job you have done. 

I have a gallery in London which specialises in sculpture from the 19th and 20th century.
I buy and sell original, authentic bronze and marble sculpture by Rodin. I work with the Musée Rodin, Hugues Herpin now and previously Alain Beausire. I also work with Jerome Le Blay who is currently working on a catalogue raisonné of his work.(...)

I would very much like to to be included on your information list as to any "Rodin" events taking place, lectures, exhibitions etc. (...)

Hello all, 

I work as a researcher for Fulmar TV based in the UK. We are currently producing a series of arts documentaries for BBC2 called The Private Life of a Masterpiece. Each 50 minute programme focuses on one major work of art and charts its life story. Some of the subjects so far have been Rembrandt´s Night Watch, Botticelli's Primavera, and Renoir's Dancing at the Moulin de la Galette. I am doing some work on the programme that will focus on Rodin's The Kiss

As I am sure you know, there are a number of versions of The Kiss around the world, one of which is in Philadelphia. It used to be on display at the Museum there but from the 1960's on it was taken and put into storage because it was not considered to have the status of the other versions, though it was from the same cast as the other versions. We hope to tell the story of this version in the programme, and wondered if there was a true Rodin fan who perhaps feels sad that this sculpture has been somewhat neglected - that it should be restored and returned to the museum. I would be very interested in talking to any individual or for instance an Appreciation Society or group that feels strongly about the treatment the Philadelphia Kiss has received. Any help or advice that you could offer me would be most gratefully received.

With kind regards

In 1960 or 61 on the Price Is Right, hosted by Bill Cullen, there was displayed a small statue of the Thinker (less than 8" tall). Stamped on the back was the caption, LE PENSEUR PAR RODIN. There had been only 5 or 6 statures made (as authenticated by a Park Bernett (?) expert who stated that this would not be duplicated for 100 years). I understand that the small statues were plated in an alloy of three different metals, sealed on the bottom, and stamped on the back with the caption above. On the TV show it was valued at $20,000. Also displayed on the show was a print or lithograph of the caption stamped on the back.

I have a neighbor who is the source of this information and wants to know where he can acquire a copy of the print. The Internet has not proved fruitful (except for your site) but he is hopeful that you can help him. Is there a Rodin mailing list that he might address? Or a likely gallery source? 

Thanks for your attention,

Guten Tag, ich glaube zwar, dass sie nicht der korrekte Ansprechpartner sind, dennoch versuche ich jetzt mein Glück bei Ihnen. Ich habe Ihnen im Anhang einige Bilder von einem Ölgemälde, welches bei mir zu Hause an der Wand hängt im Anhang reingetan. Beschäftigen tue ich mich hiermit jetzt seit ca. 5 Jahren und bin zu noch keinem eindeutigem Ergebnis gekommen. Manche meinen Original, manche Kopie.

Linda Boles ( from Okeechobee, Fl

added on Friday, February 7, 2003 1:56 PM:

I was looking on Internet for a site to c**** on the originality of a sketch we bought in Mexico in 1995. It was at a shop that we often visited and one day when we went in they had about 20 sketches that they said were by Rodin. We weren't sure of the originality so we only bought one but once we got back to the states though we might have looked at them closer. We went back the next week and they were all gone.......someone took them on commission and they ended up buying them all, so now I am really wondering about the originality. They were all B&W sketches of women (Rodin's favorite model) in different erotic poses. The one we have is four poses of a woman in pencil with writing in Spanish on the left side and at the bottom is a 2298 with a MR stamp with a circle around it. Any info on this piece would be greatly appreciated.

Dear Linda,

Sorry for getting back to you this late, but I thought, the obvious thing to do is contact Ms Claudie Judrin at the Musée Rodin in Paris, who has written the scientific catalog of Rodin´s drawings. When the drawing you possess has a MR stamp and inventory number, it should be known at the Musée Rodin.

My name is Jerry Ross. Can you tell me if Rodin ever sculpted Isadora Duncan and where I might view samples on line? 

Thank you. J

Dear Jerry,

I am not sure. You know Rodin sculpted a series of dance studies. He sculpted the mask of the Japanese dancer Hanako. But I think he only made drawings of Isodora Duncan.

You can also try to find out. Open GOOGLE and type Rodin+Duncan, for example.

Dear Hans, 

I am sorry I am unable to communicate in German. I hope you understand English. I have been searching the web and came across your splendid site. I am an author in the United States (Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania) and am working on a novel and wish to make use of Rodin's Fugitive Love. My question involves forgery. I have a character in my story who owns a fake copy of the Rodin and I need to expose him as a fraud. Might there be a relatively simple way to accomplish this? I would like to avoid complicated testing of the patina in a laboratory. Are fakes (by a man named Heim for example) characterized by something that an amateur could spot if coached by someone knowledgeable? Do museums routinely 'fingerprint' their works (scratch marks, cracks or chips) in order to make it difficult for someone to claim to have purchased or stolen that item? If so what is this process called? I thank you in advance for any help you can offer. If you have any clever insider tricks I could make use of I would appreciate it. If someone else might better help me would you kindly forward this e-mail. Finally, if this is a terrible imposition and nuisance please accept my apologies.

I am writing a dissertation on the treatment of the erotic matter by Rodin and Klimt, and I would like to hear your opinion on this matter. I think Rodin and Klimt shared the same 'passion' for women and greatly expressed her flesh through different media and modes. However they had been accused for being pornographic because of the assertive explicitness of some of their works. Thus did they twist the image of the woman to a perversion? Are Rodin's moulded nudes a display of excess sex that fells off into the pornographic? Do Klimt's painted lesbians go over the boundaries of art? Do their nudes instigate to action or simply to observe their mastery? 

At the moment I am seeking for answers and reading many books about them. Yet I have not found anything about 'the meeting' (when Rodin visited the Beethoven exhibition in June of 1902 and complimented Klimt on his work), so do you where I can find any information regarding this meeting? Did Rodin influence Klimt's art? 

If you can, please reply at or or simply use this email address. Thanks, I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Yours sincerely

I appreciate your link to my Van Gogh Gallery. I spent some time this morning exploring your Rodin website and I was very impressed. You've done a first-rate job on your site and I'm more than happy to link to you. Excellent work! The site looks terrific and I'm very impressed by the nice navigation features you use (...).

It must be a bit daunting to have a passion for an artist whose complete works encompass more than 18,000 pieces. Van Gogh's complete works amount to "only" 2,200 pieces and that's enough to keep me busy for a lifetime.(...) In any event, I do send along all my best wishes.

How can one verify original sketches? We have very old sketches signed by Rodin.
The same sketches appeared in posters on the Internet. "Dancing figures" and "After the prayer" are exactly like ours on the wall. How is that possible? Are there multiple copies? The history of ours is: My grandfather was a professor and translated French literature, Rabelais etc. to Swedish around 1920. He had bought these sketches in Paris and they should be original. How should I proceed in this matter and what are those worth?

Sehr geehrter Herr De Roos,

Durch das Internet bin ich auf Ihre ansprechende Rodin-Website gestossen (..) 

Ich bin eine Schweizer Schriftstellerin, wohnhaft in Rom, und habe eben einen Roman publiziert, der die schwierige Liebesgeschichte zwischen Rodin und der walisischen Malerin Gwen John sowie die Entstehung der Rodin-Skulptur 'La Muse à Whistler' zum Thema hat, für die Gwen John Rodin Modell gestanden ist. Mein Roman deckt die Jahre 1906 bis 1910 ab und fällt unter die Kategorie Künstlerroman; ich habe dafür im Archiv des Musée Rodin die Korrespondenz von Gwen John an Rodin (über tausend Briefe) und in der National Library of Wales die Briefe Rodins an John eingesehen und zitiere auch welche in meinem Roman.

Nun meine Frage: gerne wünsche ich mir, mit diesem Buch die Schweizer Grenzen etwas zu sprengen und auch ein deutsches Publikum anzusprechen. Wäre es möglich, dass Sie meinen Roman als Information in Ihre Bücherliste aufnehmen, sodass Internet-Surfer darauf stossen können? Angaben zu meinem Roman:
