Rodin's erotic nude studies were created during the final two decades of his life, and bear witness to a completely new approach to art, one which was free from contemporary style, from previously accepted ideals of beauty, and from every existing concept of morality. This work reproduces drawings and cutouts, including the Weimar drawings, bringing them together for the first time from museums and private collections all over the world. Previous collections only included those held by the Musée Rodin in Paris.
