Rodin Museum, Philadelphia (U.S.A.)

Jules Mastbaum (1872-1929) discovered the works of Auguste Rodin on a trip to Paris in 1923. He immediately decided to purchase a number of sculptures and sketches that he would donate to the city of Philadelphia (USA) for the purpose of founding a Rodin Museum. This museum, whose entrance is a replica of the ruined façade of the 18th-century Château d’Issy that Rodin had reconstructed at Meudon, opened in 1929.
