"Rodin: Sculpture from the Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Collection and additional works "
2000-04-16 until 2000-08-13
North Carolina Museum of Art
Raleigh, NC, USA United States of America

French sculptor Auguste Rodin (1840-1917) was regarded as the greatest living artist of his day and is considered one of the most innovative and influential sculptors since Michelangelo. Rodin's primary subject and source of inspiration was the human body, from simple eloquent studies, to penetrating portraits, to depictions of human passion and suffering, all celebrating the vitality of the human spirit.

The exhibition features bronze sculptures selected from the Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Collection, the world's foremost private collection of Rodin's work. The works explore key themes in Rodin's oeuvre: movement in sculpture, dance, emotive human poses and gestures. Exhibition highlights range from well-known sculptures including The Thinker and The Kiss to figures and groups drawn from monumental works such as The Gates of Hell, The Burghers of Calais and the Monument to Balzac.
