Today Rodin’s “Thinker” was featured as a Google Doodle in honor of the sculptor’s 172nd birthday. Make the Rodin Museum one of your mandatory stops when in Paris. Get a preview and update on their renovation and special exhibits by going to their website. Go early to avoid long lines and enjoy the gardens.

I choose a block of marble and chop off whatever I don’t need. Auguste Rodin
