On the occasion of the centenary of Rodin's death, Anselm Kiefer was given carte blanche to create works inspired by Rodin. The result of this contemplative dialogue, produced over four years, includes large-scale canvases, large-scale illustrated books worked in plaster, and vitrines filled with a mixture of personal objects, materials, debris, moulds and offcuts from Rodin's working process. These are displayed alongside drawings, sculptures, and plaster casts by Rodin, including works which have not been displayed in public previously.

Published under the direction of Musée Rodin head archivist Véronique Mattiussi, with contributions by Musée Rodin director Catherine Chevillot, curators Sophie Biass-Fabiani and Hélène Marraud, and Deputy Director for Collections and Exhibitions at The Barnes Foundation, Sylvie Patry.

This catalogue is a Gallimard, Musée Rodin, and The Barnes Foundation co-edition.
