Selection by Hans Theys for his storefront.
“In this book Rodin and Gsell are walking along the bank of the pond in Rodin’s garden at Meudon when Gsell remarks that swans are rather silly animals. Yes,’ Rodin diplomatically concedes, ‘but they have the intelligence of the line’. In the same book, Rodin illuminates Greek statues with a lamp (something not allowed at the time) to show that their skin is alive. Extraordinary.
Rodin appears in this text written for Carole Vanderlinden.” Hans Theys
