Rodin is arguably the greatest sculptor of all time, but how can someone learn about the full breadth of his portfolio? Sure there may be some Rodin sculptures in the UK but to view a full range of his work requires travel to the Musee Rodin in Paris.

If that feels like too much of a stretch, the best alternative is to purchase this book that looks at his work through 3oo illustration and is published to coincide with Rodin’s 175th birthday. It’s written by experts in his work at the Musee Rodin and it’s a comprehensive survey that teaches us everything we’d like to know about the sculptor.

It’s also surprisingly good value for money, retailing for £10 less than we would expect it to.

Rodin by Raphael Masson and Veronique Mattiusi will be available to buy on 12th November 2015 at a retail price of £19.95.  It is published by Flammarion.
