Naked Came I

Naked Came I is a bestselling 1963 novel by David Weiss based on the life of sculptor Auguste Rodin. Naked Came I portrays Rodin as driven to be an artist because his temperament would allow him to be nothing else. It shows him as a friend with other Parisian artists such as Edgar Degas, Auguste Renoir, Edouard Manet, and those of the Second French Empire associated with the Salon des Refuses: they were generally outside the Paris art establishment, and had been refused admission to the Ecole des Beaux Arts. The title is derived, according to the frontispiece, from Cervantes' Don Quixote. Due to the success of Weiss' previous novels, the book was, almost simultaneously with its American publication, also published in the United Kingdom and in translation in France, Germany, and Italy.
