The Rodin Museum (Weekend Reflections # 318)

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

 Reflections at the entrance of La Musée de Rodin.

The "Rodin Museum opened in November 1929. A unique ensemble of Beaux-Arts architecture and a formal French garden in which to experience the sculpture of Auguste Rodin, the Museum was designed by French architect Paul Cret (1876–1945) and French landscape designer Jacques Gréber (1882–1962)."

Happy Halloween !!!

Am a fan of Rodin, and have seen his work in an open air museum in Antwerp, about 1 1/2 hr. from where I lived in my childhood. Architecturally. a beautiful entrance here. Grand, but not bombastic:) And the reflection adds so much to the whole view:)

Great shot ... awesome reflection. Now that is a museum I would like to go to. I have been a Rodin fan since I was in college (won't tell you how long ago that was). You just made my day, James ... thanks!

Cela doit être un musée très agréable. C'est en étant aux US et en visitant San Francisco que j'ai découvert qu'il y avait plus qu'une sculpture du "penseur" de Rodin dont quelques-unes aux US.

I wish people could divwe the link to their post, not the blog URL. I don´t fancy having to guess which post to comment on :( It is time consuming :(
