  • overview

    By the early 20th century, Auguste Rodin was regarded by many as the greatest sculptor since Michelangelo. Rejecting 19th-century academic traditions that dictated what was “proper” in art, Rodin used sculpture made from hard marble and bronze to convey the vitality of the human spirit. His vigorous modeling emphasized his personal response to the subject, and he conveyed movement and emotion by inventing new poses and gestures.

    This special, traveling exhibition, organized and made possible by the Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Foundation, presents 22 of Rodin's important bronzes modeled between 1860 and 1910, plus three bronzes by Rodin in the permanent collection of the Jundt Art Museum.
