With his erotic nude studies Auguste Rodin completed the artistic step towards modernity during the last two decades of his life.

To a greater extent than in his sculptural oeuvre, he broke with art traditions in his pencil drawings, watercolors, and scissor cut drawings, establishing his total independence of prevalent beauty ideals and morals. His intimate paintings are characterized by expeditious strokes and the liberality of the motif. Contemporaries such as Rilke and Paul Klee immediately recognized the revolutionary artistic quality of the drawings.

The price Harry Graf Kessler had to pay for exhibiting them in Weimar 1906 was high. As a result he was dismissed from his position as head of the Grand- Ducal museum. This book, a hardcover reprint of our 1995 classic, contains 105 watercolors and scissor cuts collected from museums and private collections from all over the world, including some "scandal" drawings from Weimar.
