Rodin Museum, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA


This extensive collection was given to the public by movie theater magnate Jules Mastbaum.  The museum opened in in 1929.  Many of the pieces were, according to museum caption signs, cast by founder Alexis Rudier, who worked in Rodin's foundry.

Most of Rodin's bronze sculptures exist in several (some over 100) copies, cast to order by his foundry in Paris.
