One of my favorite places (a close second behind the Eiffel Tower, obviously) was the Rodin Museum.
|The Gates of Hell, Rodin, 1880-1890, bronze|
Auguste Rodin was a sculptor, so the museum is made up of a garden filled with statues, as well as a building with more of his work and other exhibits inside (almost 300 pieces total).
|The Kiss, Rodin, 1882, originally in marble|
Inside the museum are works by Rodin as well as pieces by other artists from his personal collection. The sculpture below is called Misery by Jules Desbois. It's a little creepy, yes, but still interesting.

Crouching Woman is a sculpture by Rodin of a woman in a similar pose. Do we see a theme here?
I'm still working through all my photos, so stay tuned for more from France!
