Originally published in 1967, this authoritative monograph, discusses Rodin's great significance as an innovator in sculpture, as well as his lasting influence on new sculptural directions in the early twentieth century. 

Auguste Rodin is the most famous and influential sculptor of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. He was considered to be a successor to Michelangelo, whom
he emulated and whose genius was a lifelong inspiration to him. Though the realistic quality of his sculpture was in defiance of current academic conventions, Rodin was
spared the prolonged and bitter hostility meted out to the Impressionists who were his contemporaries, and in later life he became a famous and widely respected figure.
