Generally speaking, Rodin is considered as the person who started modern sculpture. He was born in the year 1840. Though he wasn’t able to get in Paris’ foremost school of art, he eventually became popular thanks to his modern designs. One of the things which sets him apart from the common sculptor is that he has an exceptional ability of being able to model a complex, turbulent and deeply pocketed surface into clay.

Though a number of people frown upon his works, he continued creating works of art until eventually, the government took notice of it. And as time passed by, his reputation grew until the year 1900s where he was later recognized across the globe for being one of the most prominent French sculptor to date. He got married with Rose Beuret who was his lifelong partner. Unfortunately, after his death in the year 1917, his works suffered a decline but then again, it did not take long before his works became a legacy.

Major Changes in the Blogosphere

Hello folks!

My blogs are still alive and so do I!

SWORD just transferred to a new host, that’s big thanks to Sam! Painless! Haha. At least for me.

Since I have access to this blog now, I am revamping the sidebar content. The recent changes in the blogosphere also call for bloggers action. Adgitize just closed down and Shoutmix free plan is no longer available. With this, I have to remove Adgitize and Shoutmix widgets from my blogs. I am also looking for a chat box alternative.

I have so much to blog here but I have to save some for my other blogs. LOL. Anyway, please stay tuned for more helpful posts. Aside from being online most of the time, I am also busy reading books and watching anime. I wish I can do book and anime reviews soon.


My birthday is coming up…
