The Hungry Nomad: Musée Rodin (Paris)

January 10, 2011

Musée Rodin (Paris)

Musée Rodin~ One of my most treasured places in Paris. I would go there often on sunny spring days to sit and study or read a book in the beautiful gardens. But it is not only the extensive garden that is alluring but also the museum that houses many of famous french sculptor, Auguste Rodin's artwork. Most tourists flock to the Louvre and Musee d'Orsay (which are nothing less than a must for any lover of art). However, I highly recommend those spending more than a few days in Paris to squeeze in a few hours for the Musée Rodin. It is very accessible and you can get there very easily but taking the metro and getting off at the Varenne stop. The garden also has a small and quaint coffee shop. 

The Hotel Biron was Rodin's residence from 1908 and he later donated his entire collection of sculptures to the French State on the condition that they turn the building into a musuem dedicated to his work. So folks if you are lucky enough to physically see Rodin's masterpieces all under one roof then make sure to thank him in spirit for dedicating his work to the general public. The museum houses most of the sculptor's artwork, including the famous ThinkerThe Kiss and The Gates of Hell

Now after seeing all those naked men in artwork I can see where poopy gets his inspiration from.
