"It is very simple. My drawings are the key to my work."
The French artist Auguste Rodin (1840–1917) is one of the greatest masters in art history. He is best known for his dramatic, pathos-filled sculptures, which he created from the mid-nineteenth century onwards – works that revolutionised the art of sculpture. But Rodin was also a draughtsman. In fact he produced more than 10,000 drawings, and they occupy a key position in the evolution and method of his art.
