Bon Anniversaire, Rodin!

Today is the 172nd birthday of François-Auguste-René Rodin, and we here at the museum are in a celebratory spirit.

Female Torso V & A, Auguste Rodin, French, 1879.

Though Rodin was controversial in his time, he was also (eventually) hailed as a genius. The UMFA is lucky enough to possess some of his work–come on in and wish him a very happy birthday!

(The folks at Google are excited, too–check out their Google Doodle for today)
