The Maryhill Museum owns an internationally recognized collection of
Rodin sculptures and watercolors, including the only pedestal sized
plaster version of the The Thinker and a life sized plaster of Eve from
the Gates of Hell. The Website also shows a plaster and terracotta version of the
Fallen Caryatid Carrying her Stone. The Museum was founded by Samuel
Hill, who had been introduced to Loïe Fuller by Alma de
Bretteville-Spreckels in 1915. Till 1922, Hill bough a significant
collection of plasters, terra cottas, bronzes and watercolors, first
directly from Rodin, later through Loïe Fuller.
In the 1950´s, additional sculptures were acquired from Spicer
Simpson, who had received them as gifts from Rodin.
During the 2000 season, part of the Rodin Collection was on loan to
the Yakima Valley Museum, 90 miles north of Maryhill in Yakima,
The Rodin Gallery was recently renovated and re-designed with all of
the sculptures in the Museum's collection now on permanent display.
