Here is a serial pictures of some of Rodin's works I shot at Sakıp Sabancı Museum in Istanbul. Visiting the exhibition which also presents his correspondance and related documents about him, I must say, as well as his art, I am also impressed both by his admiration and collection of classical works. His life which witnessed other giants of art such as Monet and Cezanne whom I deeply appreciate, also offers great drama concerning his beloved Camille Claudel, a notable talent at sculpture and a very beautiful lady I can safely say, but sadly, whose life ended in an insane asylum

Victor Hugo..

Well except this one, exhibited in the garden, I must say, the dim light condition in the museum was a big challenge for my compact Canon S70, which urged me to choose exposure times such as 1/8 or 1/10 at ISO 200, obviously too long for handheld shots:!:

Wow, what I wouldn't have given to see that! The chances of an exhibit like that coming here are, well, slim to none. Your pics look like they were taken without a flash, so I'm guessing that the museum forbade that. I'm kind of surprised they let you take pictures at all inside the museum, or do you have a bit of rebel in you? Keep 'em coming, my friend.

Toshi, thanks for your kind interest. You are always allowed to use a camera inside museums here, unless the works or findings have not been classified and/or published(I confess the rebel in me would awake in such an occasion, ah I can remember the times))
However, the use of flash or tripod is almost out of question. So, as you observed correctly, I did not use any flash but had to suffice with shutter speed of 1/8-1/10 at ISO 200(400 being the limit of my compact camera, which degrades the image quality). As a matter of fact I don't mind they forbidding the use of flash since I am an available light lover but it is the restriction of tripod which I hate the most! These are the times I miss a DSLR with a fast lens...
PS. please let me know your favourite work of Rodin among the ones you see above

Hello bahadir, some nice photos there, also history lessons, there is some work of Rodin's in tower gardens in London, tower gardens is a public park, The Burghers of Calais, I understand that under french law no more than 12 casts of this piece were permitted after Rodin's death, the castings were purchased by the goverment in 1911, thats all I know about him really, but I liked the look of his work.

I am so pleased to read your kind words, Alex. As Imentioned before, I deeply admire Rodin's profound knowledge and appreciation for the Classical Art. In this regard, I findThe Burghers of Calais a great groupsculpture which I 'somehow' associate with the Renaissance sculptor Nanni di Banco's Four Crowned Martyrsemphisizing theunderlying values of Antiquity.

Will be delighted to see your photos of the burghers groupby Rodin when youvisit London
