Rodin at the Brooklyn Museum: The Body in Bronze

April 18 @ 11:00 am - 6:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)
Every week on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday until April 22, 2018

We mark the hundredth anniversary of Auguste Rodin’s death, in 1917, with an installation of our remarkable collection of 58 Rodin bronzes, acquired through a generous gift from the Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Foundation in 1983.

Rodin at the Brooklyn Museum: The Body in Bronze highlights the extraordinary tension in Rodin’s work between the figure itself and abstract form, allowing the fluid contours, animated surfaces, and emotional presence of these bronzes to emerge fully. The presentation places the works in their historical context, examining Rodin’s legacy and reputation, and exploring his sculptural practice and the bronze casting process.
