Rodin: The Human Experience
Sep 01, 2017 - Jan 07, 2018, Exhibits
Rodin: The Human Experience presents a selection of 32 figures in bronze by Auguste Rodin (1840-1917), the legendary French sculptor whose contemporaries considered him to be the greatest practitioner of his craft since Michelangelo. Rodin left behind 19th-century academic traditions to focus on conveying the passion and vitality of the human spirit, and exerted a tremendous influence on artists of subsequent generations, such as Matisse, Brancusi, and Maillol. 2017 marks the centennial of Rodin’s death, and Telfair Museums joins with museums around the world to honor this anniversary with exhibitions and educational programs.
