“An American in Paris” by Pamela: musée Rodin

The musée Rodin is one of my favorite museums.  It was opened in 1919 in the hôtel Biron and surrounding grounds.  Rodin used the hôtel Biron as his residence from 1908 and subsequently donated his entire collection of sculptures along with paintings by Vincent van Gogh and Pierre-Auguste Renoir that he had acquired to the French State on the condition that they turn the building into a museum dedicated to his works.  This picture of a rose in the rose garden was taken in the month of November 1997.
