Rodin and Dance

Musée Rodin, Paris

7 Apr - 22 Jul 2018

Highlighting Rodin’s links to the world of dance, this exhibition features the sculptor’s famous Dance Movements series – never shown in the artist’s lifetime – alongside a selection of around fifty drawings. Rodin’s fascination with dance will be illustrated by his encounters with dancers of the era, such as Isadora Duncan, Loïe Fuller, the Cambodian royal ballet and the Japanese dancer Hanako. A selection of outstanding works including sculptures, photographs, drawings and antiquities will immerse visitors in a world of grace and poetry. Find out more about the Rodin exhibition from the Musée Rodin’s website.
