Rodin. This is probably my favourite piece of art ever. He hasn't just captured the detail of the hands. But the emotion of a lover's touch. It takes my breath away. Pinned from my friend Jenn's blog. www.earthfirewaterearth.blogspot.com
Rodin willed his entire studio and casts to the French state with the intention they would continue to reproduce his work; his final gift to the country ...
Bernini - Hades and Proserpina - 1622-23
Lovers | Auguste Rodin (I haven't found other images of this sculpture so I'm not sure, if someone knows more, write a comment!)
Auguste Rodin - “Danaïd” 1885 (modeled after his assistant and lover, Camille Claudel)
Auguste Rodin - The Kiss (Le Baiser). One of my faves at the Rodin Museum.
