The Golden Age of Russian Impressionism


 

 

Auguste Rodin - click name for biography


·         It is truly flesh! You would think it moulded by kisses and caresses! You almost expect, when you touch this body, to find it warm.(Rodin talking about an antique marble copy of the Venus de' Medici)
-Auguste Rodin


·         The sculptor represents the transition from one pose to another.. he indicates how insensibly the first glides into the second. In his work we still see a part of what was and we discover a part of what is to be.
- Auguste Rodin


·         It is the artist who is truthful and it is photography which lies, for in reality time does not stop, and if the artist succeeds in producing the impression of a movement which takes several moments for accomplishment, his work is certainly much less conventional than the scientific image, where time is abruptly suspended.
- Auguste Rodin


·         Art is contemplation. It is the pleasure of the mind which searches into nature and which there divines the spirit of which Nature herself is animated.
- Auguste Rodin


·         Recently I have taken to isolating limbs, the torso. Why am I blamed for it? Why is the head allowed and not portions of the body? Every part of the human figure is expressive.
- Auguste Rodin


·         Have pity, mean girl. I can't go on. I can't go another day without seeing you. Atrocious madness, it's the end, I won't be able to work anymore. Malevolent goddess, and yet I love you furiously. (Rodin writing to his lover Camille Claudel)
- Auguste Rodin


·         How painful it is to find that my figure can be of no help to my future.. how painful to see it rejected on account of a slanderous suspicion! (Rodin talking about a work he created that was so realistic, he was accused of creating the work from a mold).
- Auguste Rodin


·         The artist must create a spark before he can make a fire and before art is born, the artist must be ready to be consumed by the fire of his own creation.
- Auguste Rodin
