Rodin Museum

I’m back in the U.S., but here are a few pics from my few days in Paris. I was staying in the 7th, so a visit to the nearby Rodin Museum was a must. I wrote a short poem a few years ago about a Rodin statue of Adam that I saw at the Art Institute of Chicago (in marble, interestingly), so I was captivated by the bronze statues of Eve at the museum in Paris. And by the Gates of Hell where both figures would have been placed.

Having said all that, even The Thinker pales in comparison to the simple roses in the garden (IMHO). The works of man are great, but Mother Nature is the greatest artist of all.
