An insightful exploration of Antony Gormley’s work and his lifelong engagement with Auguste Rodin  

Antony Gormley (b. 1950) is widely acclaimed for his sculptures, installations, and public artworks that investigate the relationship of the human body to space. Tracing a dialogue between the influential British sculptor and Auguste Rodin (1840–1917), this book explores the work of two of the most well-known and respected sculptors of their respective times.

This fascinating encounter is staged through extensive installation photography of Gormley’s work within and around the Musée Rodin in Paris, never-before-seen drawings, workbooks, and models from the artist’s studio, as well as Rodin’s own sculptures, maquettes, and drawings. Seen together, it invites readers to reflect on the artists’ shared investment in questioning what the body offers sculpture as a subject, object, and reflexive tool. Featuring new authoritative scholarship, as well as an insightful and wide-ranging conversation with Gormley, this beautifully illustrated volume documents the enduring impact of Rodin’s work on Gormley.   Exhibition Schedule:  Muse´e Rodin, Paris (October 17, 2023–March 3, 2024)
