About the Author

Antoinette le Normand-Romain is the former general curator of sculpture at the Musee Rodin and managing director of the Institut national d'histoire de l'art.


'Published 90 years after Auguste Rodin's death, this catalogue raisonne of his bronzes is a major contribution to the study of art history and a prime example of scholarly work executed with care, expertise, and devotion. Le Normand-Romain (curator, Musee Rodin, Paris) details all casts of the works and variations in other forms and media as well as includes extensive information about the foundries employed, the people involved in every step of the process, and the artists with whom Rodin worked. A member of the Paris Bar offers a legal perspective on the museum's role in producing and marketing reproductions. The works are listed alphabetically by their original French titles; entries include such information as title, date of creation, inventory number, size, signature, inscriptions, provenance, references to catalogs from both the Musee du Luxembourg and the Musee Rodin, and exhibitions in which the works have appeared. Each entry concludes with a short commentary on the work that places it in historical and artistic context as well as with bibliographical references. Well ordered and accessible, with superb photographs, this represents a landmark in museum publishing and deserves a place in every art, academic, and large public collection'.-Library Journal 'Antoinette Le Normand-Romain is recognized as the foremost Rodin scholar... the book will have a long life and many readers.' Comments by Catherine Lampert, curator of the Rodin exhibition at the Royal Academy, London 'an invaluable and much anticipated resource both for scholars tracking down details on specific works and for enthusiasts seeking to enrich their knowledge of the range of Rodin's sculptural creation ... Highly recommended'. Choice 2008
