Another perspective on a radically innovative and at times controversial artist—great as a high school curriculum supplement or a read for curious adults

This comics biography of one of the greatest sculptors who ever lived is brought to life by a collaboration with the Rodin Museum and includes a preface by its director. It views the artist's story through the eyes of the three women who shared his life, for good or for bad. One was his lifelong on-and-off companion, the other two his muses—one of whom was Camille Claudel, a well-recognized sculptor herself. Rodin's work was revolutionary in conveying exceptional passion, transcending the stone. Here's how that happened.
