Musée Rodin...


When Auguste Rodin (1840-1917) decided, during his final years, to donate his works to the French State, he only ask for one condition: to be allowed to live till death at the Hotel Biron, in Paris. The hotel not only became his residence but today houses most of his works as it became the Musée Rodin. Visiting it is like entering his atelier, his very own creative lab. 
The MNBA has several artworks by Rodin, among them The Kiss and Balzac's head, which are also on display at the Musée Rodin.

It iss not only worthy visiting the museum to see Rodin's atelier, but also because it offers the chance to tour around the gardens of the Hotel Biron, where bronze sculptures are displayed in splendour.
