The 455 bronze sculptures of the Rodin Museum have been brought together and presented for the first time in the form of a catalogue raisonné. Directed by Antoinette Le Normand-Romain, General Curator responsible for Sculptures at the Rodin Museum from 1994 to 2006, this catalogue is devoted to the major part of Rodin’s oeuvre.

From one work to another, readers learn to discover the sculptor himself. The artist is omnipresent, from the initial conception process to the search for new patinas for his bronze sculptures.

The catalogue contains an introduction by the author, who describes the relations maintained by Rodin, and then by the Museum, with bronze casters. Ruth Butler, an American art historian and expert on Rodin, presents the history of relations between the American collector B. Gerald Cantor and the Rodin Museum, while Maître Régis Cusinberche, a lawyer at the Bar of Paris, gives an overview of French law and jurisprudence that regulates the original bronzes. The publication of this catalogue was made possible thanks to the generosity of the Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Foundation.
