Photographies

The Musée Rodin has approximately 25,000 photographs, 7,000 of them were collected by Auguste Rodin himself. The subjects and themes are varied: the personal albums attest to his centres of interest and artistic sources, while the portraits and newspaper photographs illustrate his life. These photographs above all record what happened in the studio, between 1877 and 1917, the year the sculptor died.
