Book Competition

25 September 2015

This week’s competition prize is Rodin, by Raphael Masson and Véronique Mattiussi (Musée Rodin and Flammarion, £19.95).

Rodin, the first authoritative monograph from the Musée Rodin, is written by the museum’s leading experts. The artist’s life and art are explored in chapters that cover everything from his youth and education, the commission of The Gates of Hell, his relationship with Camille Claudel, his monuments, the exhibition that brought him international acclaim, his studios, his sources of inspiration and the final years of his life. This diverse book combines drawings, watercolours, archival documents and new shots of sculptures, specially made for this book, along with a detailed chronology and bibliography.

For your chance to win simply answer the following question and submit your details here before midday on 9 October 2015.

In which year did the Musée Rodin open at the Hôtel Biron in Paris, the artist’s former home?

This competition closes at midday on 9 October 2015.
