    I sometimes wonder if the title, “The Thinker”, was a joke played by Rodin on his audience.

    The Kiss was a riot as well.

    Here is a link to answer my somewhat puzzling comment.^ Also Monty Python’s comic manipulation vignettes shows the Man in the Kiss playing the Woman like a flute, and it never fails to come to mind when I see the statue. www.artguidenw.com/RodinWords.com

    In French, the title is Le Penseur

    And it is originally part of his Gates of Hell piece which has many parts to it, some of which are also well known individually, including the Kiss. Apparently the original name was Le Poète, the Poet, which would make sense for a Dante reference.

    A Newbie to this site, I don’t know if you’ll get this sent to your e;ail address, but if so, I think we have some things in common, not to the least of which is: “Je suis Charlie tout comme toi.”

    I thought Rodin was pondering how to deal with the toilet paper being out of reach.
