Whether you’ve admired his museum on the Left Bank of Paris or are completely new to this master artist, Rodin is a sculptor whose work has indelibly influenced the world of modern art. He was known for never fully finishing his sculptures, because they reflected true life – which is never fully finished, either. Love, death, mythology, physicality and character are all hallmarks of this genius’ style – and you can see 199 of his works at the Iris & B. Gerald Cantor Center for Visual Arts at Stanford University. The largest collection of bronze Rodin sculptures outside of Paris, this immaculate collection features almost 200 works from the famous artist. Gaze up in awe at his masterpiece, “The Thinker,” who sits in silent contemplation for all eternity. Venture a look at the towering “Gates of Hell,” and witness the captivating scene inspired by Dante and “The Inferno.”
