Auguste Rodin (Paris, 1840-Meudon, 1917) and Alberto Giacometti (Borgonovo, Switzerland, 1901-Coira, Switzerland, 1966) never met each other. In fact, when Giacometti arrived in Paris in 1922, Rodin had been dead for five years. However, through their artistic careers we can witness an interesting dialog between them which reveals a number of similarities but also differences in their work, something which is inevitable in two such free-thinking artists separated by more than a generation.
