Rodin Museum

2012 Grant of $10,000—Philadelphia Chapter

A gift of Jules Mastbaum (1872-1926) to his native city of Philadelphia, the Rodin Museum houses the largest public collection of artist Auguste Rodin’s work outside Paris.

Constructed in 1929 and administered by the Philadelphia Museum of Art for more than seventy years, the Rodin Museum is renowned for both the beauty of its grounds and its architecture.

More than 120 sculptures representing every aspect of Rodin’s career and all of the artist’s major projects, including bronze casts of the master’s greatest works, are showcased within a neoclassical Beaux Arts gem set amid an elegant garden designed by the French-born visionaries: architect Paul Cret and landscape designer, Jacques Gréber.
