Thought For The Day

"Art is contemplation. 
It is the pleasure of the mind which searches 
into nature and which there divines the spirit of which nature herself is animated."

The quoted words are by French sculptor Francois-Auguste-Rene Rodin (1840 - 1917).  The sculpture, also by Rodin, is called Rose Beuret.


  1. Wasn't she his mistress? He made her memorable with this piece.

  2. She was only his mistress for 50 years.

    And the mother of his son.

    Oh, and his model for this wonderful sculpture.
