Rodin: The Centennial Exhibition

Grand Palais, Paris

NOW CLOSED

To mark the centenary of his death, the Musée Rodin and Réunion des musées nationaux Grand Palais are joining forces to celebrate Auguste Rodin (1840-1917). The exhibition is structured into three major sections: Rodin the expressionist, Rodin the experimenter, and the effects of this shockwave after 1945. Each section is broken down into three parts, which explore the artist’s creative world, the exhibitions and collectors he attracted and the ways in which numerous artists have appropriated his work, from his lifetime to the present day. Featuring over 200 of Rodin’s works, it also includes sculptures and drawings by Bourdelle, Brancusi, Picasso, Matisse, Giacometti, Beuys, Baselitz and Gormley, shedding new light on this giant of sculpture. Find out more about the Rodin exhibition from the Grand Palais’ website.
