(Outfit Diary) Musee Rodin // La Porte de l'Enfer








The instant you think you've done everything in Paris, you will undoubtedly find yourself proven wrong. The Rodin Museum opened in 1919, but I made my first visit to what was once the artist's studio, where his most famous works are still housed, last week. The garden, still full of roses in late September, and the magical Hotel Biron, captured my imagination as much as the sculptures - especially The Gates of Hell, which you see in these photos; a real set of sculpted doors that include miniature versions of the most famous and well-loved works by the artist whose name the museum still bears.

Le moment ou vous croyez avoir tout fait à Paris, vous trouverez sans doute que vous avez tort. Le Musée Rodin est ouvert en 1919, mais j’ai fait ma première visite à l’ancien atelier de l’artiste, où veillent toujours ses œuvres les plus impressionnants, la semaine passée. Le jardin, tout plein de roses même à la fin de septembre, ainsi que la magnifique Hôtel Biron, m’ont captivé autant que les sculptures – surtout La Porte de l’Enfer que vous voyez dans ces photos, une véritable porte comprenant des versions miniatures de la plupart des sculptures plus connues de l’artiste dont le musée porte le nom.

  15. Cee I am beginning to think it never rains in Paris if these photos are anything to go by - I'm really noticing the move towards monochrome and neutral in your blog but it's always a perfectly chic and just as much 'you' as ever. I was just given some gorgeous tights from Wolford as a gift and I rarely wear patterned tight so am thinking how to style them - you've inspired me here!
