The Gates of Hell - Rodin

Theresa Spath
I personally think The Gates of Hell is Rodin's best work. It captures his mind perfectly because he was rebellious against the times. He believed art should be realistic. The Gates of Hell is very symbolic of this freedom. It is also amazing that this took 37 years to make because it was altered so many times to become perfect. I would like to get to Philadelphia soon to see the bronze sculpture.
