Details

This exhibition will feature 50 bronzes by French sculptor Auguste Rodin who is generally considered the father of modern sculpture. Rodin is recognized as one of the greatest sculptors since Michelangelo. His pioneering work deconstructed the body as fragments, or partial figures that reveal human vitality, pathos, and beauty. His impressionistic modeling, sensuality, and modernist approach to public sculpture brought him both scandal and success. His many public commissions broke all 19th-century French academic traditions.
