Rodin, The Centenary Exhibition
The musée Rodin and the Réunion des musées nationaux Grand Palais are joining forces to commemorate the artist. The exhibition highlights Rodin’s creative universe, his relationships with the public and how sculptors have appropriated his aesthetic. With over 200 works by Rodin, the exhibition also contains sculptures and drawings by Bourdelle, Brancusi, Picasso, Matisse, Giacometti, Beuys, Baselitz and Gormley, among others, and casts a new light on this master of sculpture.
