A Summer Morning Chez Rodin

Each summer I try to visit the garden of the musée Rodin as often as I can. It’s funny (after 6 years of living in Paris), in my mind I now see the Rodin as this enchanting secret garden in the corner of the 7th and not like a museum at all. I guess that’s the magical appeal of Rodin’s house! I find August the perfect time to visit as there are less crowds. I try to get there as early as I can to catch the morning light and to feel I have the garden all to myself (almost)! This year the Rodin casts an even more magical summer spell over the museum with the re-opening of the newly renovated house! I’ve had a couple of beautiful mornings exploring the new house and having a coffee in the garden there this summer! Today I am sharing a few highlights from my Rodin visits and taking you on a little tour inside! On y va!

Early morning at the Rodin, the big bay windows are open-wide to let the summer breeze blow in…

Love the gothic feel and the stained-glass windows – the roses are a real style signature of the Rodin. I’m certain they grow more impressive each season…

Walking around the side of the house, through the little maze gardens and spiked shrubs, love this side view of the house and the sculpture in the distance…

Inside the house…the beautiful, bay windows are the first thing that catch my attention! I love the view points of the garden from the windows inside the house too!

The enchanting sculptures who reside chez Rodin! They captivate me!

Love the light and the colour palette…

I also love the change of atmosphere to the left-hand side of the house. Look how the light falls catching the colours of the trees outside, it’s pretty unique!

One of my favourite marble sculptures…

And that amazing view of the garden from the back of the house!

Back outside and one final moment with the great thinker himself!
