Auguste Rodin saw the body as an envelope for the spirit, and the flickering surfaces of his modeled forms express this tension. His sculptures’ poses, directly inspired by Michelangelo’s powerful marble works, capture the human condition in all its elation and anguish. Rodin holds a prized place in the history of art, straddling the decades of the late 19th and early 20th centuries when the world was striving for a new modern form of expression. Visitors will learn about his processes for drawing, modeling, and casting as they immerse themselves in more than 45 examples of the artist’s works in bronze.
