Description

The home of a great artist

Immerse yourself in the spirit of a studio and the atmosphere of an artist's residence at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries. The renovation of the villa, based on period photographs, made it possible to reconstruct the sculptor's living and working environment. A unique opportunity to discover many plasters produced by the artist, including those of monumental works in their successive states: The Gate of Hell, the Bourgeois de Calais, the many studies and figures for Balzac, the monuments to Victor Hugo, Puvis de Chavannes and Whistler. Their importance is considerable because it is the first state of work creation before its realization in bronze or marble.
Some of these plasters are also on display at the Rodin Museum in Paris.

Auguste and Rose Rodin's grave

The park comprises several different atmospheres. The lawn beside the tree-lined pathway is decorated with original monumental bronze sculptures that provide an introduction to Rodin’s art. Further on, The Walking Man, on a Column dominates a grassy area overlooking the river Seine―a pleasant place for a picnic in fine weather. The groves are dotted with classical sculptures and, in front of the facade of the Château d’Issy, The Thinkerwatches over the tomb of Rodin and his wife Rose, who both died in 1917.

Enter exceptional artists' homes.

TOP TIP: the admission ticket is included in the Paris Region Pass Experience.
