François Auguste René Rodin (12 November 1840 – 17 November 1917),
known as Auguste Rodin, was a French sculptor.
Although Rodin is generally considered the progenitor of modern sculpture,
he did not set out to rebel against the past.
He was schooled traditionally, took a craftsman-like approach to his work,
and desired academic recognition, although he was never accepted into Paris's foremost school of art.
Auguste Rodin, born in Paris on November 12, 1840, was a sculptor whose work had a huge influence on modern art.
Unlike many famous artists, Rodin didn't become widely established until he was in his 40s.
Developing his creative talents during his teens, Rodin later worked in the decorative arts for nearly two decades.
He eventually sculpted the controversial piece "The Vanquished" (renamed "The Age of Bronze"), exhibited in 1877.
Among Rodin's most lauded works is "The Gates of Hell," a monument of various sculpted figures that includes "The Thinker" (1880) and "The Kiss" (1882).
