August Rodin was born 12 November 1840, and died 17 November 1917. He was a very progressive French artist who favored sculpture of the human body. The Rodin Museum in Paris holds a great many of his pieces, and is such a joy to walk through. Many of the pieces in there are his clay models he used to create the final product in some other medium such as bronze.
Below are some photographs of some of these pieces.
