'The Kiss,' Other Rodin Bronzes to Be Auctioned in Paris
The Daily Mail
Five small bronze statues by French 19th-century sculptor Auguste Rodin will be auctioned in Paris next week, including a cast of his celebrated "The Kiss," which has an estimated value of 1.5 million to 2 million euros ($1.70 million to $2.27 million).
The five statues, to be sold by auction house Drouot on Tuesday, come from the collection of late French art dealer Jean de Ruaz, who bought them from the Rodin Museum in the 1940s.
