SENSUAL RODIN

We start with a famous thought.  We end with a famous kiss.

R1

 

Rodin’s Thinker greats you in the courtyard of the Rodin House in Paris.  And so he will be the introduction to this post of some of Rodin’s more sensual statuary, as found in the Rodin House, continuing my informal series of Sensual Statues in Paris.

R3

 

This post will conclude with Rodin’s Kiss, getting particularly close and intimate with that masterwork of sensuality.

 

But first let’s enter the house and join the other tourists wandering the halls and taking in the statuary.

 

R4

 

And as we did before, we will choose music from ye olde sensual classics cd:

Sensual Classic #5: Ravel – Pavane Pour Une Infante Défunte

 

R5

R6

R7

 

Here a kiss, there a kiss.  But for THE KISS itself, you must scroll through to the end…

R9

 

Sensual Classic #6: Schubert: Impromptu Opus 90/3 – Andante

 

R10

R11

 

“You gonna take that picture?”

R11a

R12

R13

That position seems particularly awkward and oppressive from this angle:

R13a

R14

R15

R16

R17

R18

R19

R20

R21

R22

R22a

 

Finally, let’s approach The Kiss:

R24a

R24b

R24c

 

Get rather close…

R24e

And raise the camera to an angle above where our own eyes could see…

R24d

 

R24f

 

R24g
