Today I ventured out around Paris at close to freezing temperatures to hear of Rodin's career which was beset by controversy and disappointment. We saw the sculptor's early works, and heard of his struggle to get accepted: he was refused three times when he applied to study at the famous Beaux Arts school. The collection of sculptures displayed in the Musée Rodin and the attractive garden includes The Kiss, The Thinker, The Gates of Hell, Balzac, and The Burghers of Calais.
