In the 1860s, when Auguste Rodin began making sculpture, art was deeply rooted in the past and depicted stories from religion, history, and myth. At the peak of his career in the 1890s, Rodin had transformed sculpture into something that elicited emotions and imaginations. His work told stories that were internal and conceptual, and that were open to interpretation. By the time Rodin died in 1917 he had, through prodigious talent and a remarkable volume of work, revolutionized sculpture. Today his work is a crucial link between traditional and modern art.
