Rodin at the Brooklyn Museum: The Body in Bronze
Rodin at the Brooklyn Museum: The Body in Bronze will highlight the extraordinary tension in Rodin’s work between the figure itself and abstract form, allowing the fluid contours, animated surfaces, and emotional presence of these bronzes to emerge fully. Accompanying interpretive texts will place the works on view in their historical context, examine Rodin’s legacy and reputation, and explore his sculptural practice and the bronze casting process.
This exhibition is made possible through the generous support of the Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Foundation.
