Designed to imitate an artist�s sketchbook, this exquisite collection of Auguste Rodin�s nude drawings is a sensuous celebration of his work.
One of the world�s most revered sculptors, Rodin spent much of his late career sketching nudes in his studio. At the time these intimate studies were considered obscene and their first public exhibition resulted in scandal. Today Rodin�s erotic work is appreciated for its great expressive power, confidence of line, and delicate colors. This collection of more than thirty color drawings offers readers the unique experience of peering over the artist�s shoulder as he works. The stunning reproductions, embossed cover and ribbon tie make this a perfect gift for lovers of art and lovers everywhere.
