The great master of the human form: The sweetness of sin arose from the roots of pain Auguste Rodin was the great master of the human form, in clay, bronze and marble. He hymned Woman, summoning all the passions, joys and vices of life. The poet Rilke wrote that "the sweetness of sin arose from the roots of pain" in Rodins figures. They captivate us still, their brilliance undimmed by the passage of time.
