Item description for Rodin & Beuys by Auguste Rodin, Joseph Beuys & Max Hollein...
Between 1947 and 1964 Joseph Beuys produced a swath of works on paper that, in their style, technique, and formal vocabulary, echo those of Auguste Rodin by way of his teacher and mentor, sculptor, Wilhelm Lehmbruck. Although Beuys's work remains very different from his predecessors', it does take up themes they had pursued, including the idea of the torso as an autonomous, enclosed form and of the fragment as the simplest and most elementary embodiment of immutability. This book sets Beuys's works on paper and sculptures opposite the works on paper and sculptures of Rodin and Lehmbruck, and finds both striking affinities and autonomy.

More About Auguste Rodin, Joseph Beuys & Max Hollein
Auguste Rodin (1840-1917) was a French sculptor. Born in Paris, Rodin attended art school at a young age, but unable to advance to a higher education in art, he spent much of his early life working as a craftsman, doing decorative, architectural work. It wasn't until receiving a modest museum commission in 1880 that he was able to dedicate himself to his own art full-time.
By 1900, his dominating artistic career was well-established. A prodigious worker, he remains best known for singular sculptures like The Thinker and The Kiss and his monuments to French writers HonorAAEAA(c) de Balzac and Victor Hugo.
While Rodin's works can be found in museum collections and on public display in cities around the world, the MusAAEAA(c)e Rodin--opened in Paris in his former residence in 1919--continues to hold the largest single collection of the artist's work.
