Rodin: Cut-outs

Musée Rodin, Paris

6 Nov 2018 - 24 Feb 2019

Throughout his career, Rodin cut and pasted figures from his drawings into albums, testing out new arrangements and juxtapositions. This exhibition presents some 250 drawings, 90 of which contain cut-outs, and argues that these collages are not just exercises, but artworks in their own right. Find out more about the Rodin exhibition from the Musée Rodin’s website.
