Outstanding seducer, Auguste Rodin, “the father of modern sculpture”, was fascinated by the exaltation of the body and the flesh. Among his conquests, the most famous remains Camille Claudel, his muse and mistress, with whom he maintained a passionate and tumultuous love story for more than 10 years. His works are a hymn to sensuality and eroticism.
One could not have dreamt of a better Valentine’s Day… For this very special occasion, no guided tour, but a sensory stroll through the sculptor’s most romantic works. In an intimate and subdued atmosphere, you move at your own pace, between dance, poetry and music.
It would of course be impossible for us to talk about Rodin’s romantic artworks without mentioning The Kiss, icon of lovers.
As your eyes linger along the curves of this sculpture, it is as if time stands still and love is reinvented…
As a special bonus, you will have free access to the temporary exhibition dedicated to the sculptor Barbara Hepworth, a major figure in 20th century British sculpture.
A nice detour if you appreciate modern, abstract and poetic sculpture, in the pursuit of the perfect form, from the artist who rubbed shoulders with Henry Moore, Picasso or Mondrian in her time.
Moreover, during your stay in Paris for Valentine’s Day, the Raspail offers you half a bottle of champagne and breakfasts. An original way to spend a weekend with your Valentine in Paris, far from the usual bouquets of roses and chocolate hearts!
