Musée Rodin, Paris 7ème arrdt

Altogether not a statue aficionado, I nevertheless enjoy the disproportionate hands and feet of Auguste Rodin's bronzes.

They are particularly at their advantage in the garden, even in winter.
Despite the bleak weather, the outside is way more enjoyable than the inside (which is rather dusty and archaic).

The snag, though, is that in order to properly appreciate the statues in the garden, unless you are fairly familiar with Rodin's work, you need to go through the indoors exhibition, as there are no information signs on the outside statues, which is a minus. 

Le Penseur
(or "le réfléchisseur" as my 8-year-old has it. Only funny in French, though.)
