Description Reflections on the Sculptor's Relationship to Twentieth-century Public Space

In the first half of the twentieth century, architects such as Walter Gropius, Peter Behrens and Mies van der Rohe conspicuously chose sculptors other than Rodin for their public schemes. In both France and America, architects deemed him to be better suited to a more intimate sphere. Dr penelope Curtis, Curator of the Henry Moore Institute, considers Rodin's perceived sutiability for projects that have defined notions of the modern museum, the museum garden adn the commemorative scheme.
