Rodin studios new york city


A New York City landmark at 200 West 57th Street, it was designed by architect Cass Gilbert and built in 1916 and 1917. It is called a "terra-cotta lover's paradise" because of the material of its abundant "fanciful mythic figures and cathedral style motifs". The building of 14 stories was organized by three artists so they could have living quarters and studios in one space. They were Lawton Parker, Georgia Timken Fry and her husband, John Hemming Fry. Dedicated to French culture, they named the building for Auguste Rodin, the famous French sculptor. Source:
