            Auguste Rodin
             

            Auguste Rodin (PDF ebook)

            By Rilke, Rainer Maria

            Heredero de los preceptos de la Antiguedad y de Bernini, Auguste Rodin (1840 - 1917) recibio una innegable influencia de Miguel Angel, en particular, por su obra Los esclavos. Y como Miguel Angel, Rodin gozo de fama y fortuna (doctor honoris causa y miembro de la Legion de Honor,... entre otras), aunque ciertos escandalos y controversias mancharon su reputacion: sus esculturas de Victor Hugo y de Balzac fueron rechazadas y El beso fue considerada demasiado erotica. Sin embargo, a pesar de tener muchas amantes y de haberse encaprichado con su estudiante Camille Claudel, quien esculpia el cuerpo femenino mejor que nadie, pleno de realismo y sensualidad, Rodin sigue siendo uno de los artistas mas determinantes en la escultura del siglo XX. "Venus y Eva son palabras demasiado simples para describir la belleza de la mujer". (Rodin) Este libro revela la vida de Rodin, a traves del estudio de sus obras mas famosas, como Las puertas del infierno, El pensador y El beso.
