OP RODIN, WHISTLER ET LA MUSE (Rodin, Whistler and the Muse). Musee Rodin, Paris, 1995. 166 pp. with 148 ills. (27 col.). 28 x 22 cm. ISBN 2901428436 In French.
A detailed examination of a never-completed monument to Whistler begun by Rodin (1840-1917) in 1905, this catalogue features illustrations of some 100 works from the holdings of the Musee Rodin that include preparatory sketches and numerous plaster and bronze studies for the Muse Whistler, photographs of the work in progress, and a series of drawings by British artist Gwen John, who served as Rodin's model for the statue. Three essays present a substantial critical assessment of the monument (a draped nude), a description of the protracted development of the commissioned project, and an account of John's relationship with Rodin during the period.
