Museums can be boring. Paintings or sculptures on wall after wall can make a person giddy with this genius and that genius who added who knows what to civilization as we know it. Somehow those claims are supposed to be the marker of universal truth - mundane artistic details that captivate art lovers.
I don't buy those universal claims of genius and civilization much and try to avoid most museums, except for a few that are truly stunning such as The Metropolitan in New York City, The British Museum in London, The Kimball Art Museum in Fort Worth, the Louvre in Paris and now another beautiful little gem in Paris, the Musee Rodin (Rodin Museum).
Auguste Rodin was a 19th century French sculptor who is considered by many art historians to be the "father" of modern sculpture. His subjects were centered around the realism of the human body and his most famous works are "The Kiss," and "The Thinker" as well as "The Gates of Hell." The Musee Rodin displays Rodin's works not only inside but also outside in beautiful garden settings. It's walking up to his sculptures, displayed on Nature's canvas of beautiful trees and flowers that make his art truly come alive.
Movies: For more on the life of Auguste Rodin, you'll want to see French movie Camille Claudel. It's the story of his girlfriend who literally went insane. Rodin was "married" to another woman but carrying on a passionate affair with Camille, who was also one of his students. Ah. The life of artists. Never boring.
