In hindsight, their collaboration appears to be a classic masterstudent that mostly shaped the younger student’s creative development. But only one year later, in 1906 , the close collaboration came to a sudden end – and RODIN and RILKE did not part as friends. They met time and time again and for a while, Rilke even lived at the HOTEL BIRON (Rodin’s Parisian Townhouse from 1908 and the present-day MUSÉE RODIN ), but they never grew truly close again.
