Auguste Rodin: Images of Desire: Erotic Watercolors and Cut-Outs Auguste Rodin: Images of Desire: Erotic Watercolors and Cut-Outs
(Anne-Marie Bonnet, Auguste Rodin )
In the twilight of his career, when he had already established his eminence as a sculptor, Auguste Rodin turned almost obsessively to sketching the female form. These drawings were produced quickly, with the artistsí eyes following his modelsí every move, his pen or pencil in constant contact with the paper. Rodin referred to these quickly executed sketches as his "one-minute drawings," and he produced literally thousands of them in various media: India ink, gouache, watercolor, charcoal and pencil. This elegant volume includes over 100 drawings and cutouts beautifully reproduced in the warm and subtle tones of the original.
