François-Auguste-René Rodin (French, 1840-1917) is one of the most celebrated artists of all time. He is revered for his mastery of the figurative sculptural form and known for his highly textural and gestural style. Drawing from life, he developed a naturalistic approach that ran counter to the prevailing Beaux-Arts traditions. Despite years of laboring in obscurity and constant criticism from his contemporaries, he emerged as the preeminent French sculptor of his generation and is considered to be the progenitor of modern sculpture.
