Auguste Rodin – Filmed Sculpting in his Studio (1915)

This is unique film of the father of modern sculpture, Auguste Rodin (1840-1917), working in his studio in Paris in 1915.
What is particularly interesting in the various pieces of footage is seeing — close up – the artist’s process with marble.

There are four segments of film:
[1] The artist walking up and down the steps of a monumental columned building, and inspecting the structure.
[2] Rodin posing top-hatted in a garden.
[3] The sculptor coming out of the then derelict C18 Hôtel Biron, which the artist used as his studio.
[4] Rodin sculpting in his studio.
