Some artworks of Rodin were displayed

Shot at National Museum of Western Art in Ueno, Tokyo.

The photo is the compartment of the sculpture 'Les Bourgeois de Calais' by Auguste Rodin. It was cast in 1953 and placed here in 1959. This work is one of 12 original casts.

The curator who worked in the museum at that time might like Auguste Rodin. There were also other works by him were collected by the museum. You can see 'The Thinker' and 'The Gates of Hell' in this museum. Unfortunately, most visitors go past this masterpiece.
