Short Course: The Work of Auguste Rodin
12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

During the summer months, the Museum will enjoy several sculptures by Auguste Rodin on loan from the Iris Cantor.  As is evident in his work, Rodin was both a radical innovator and a traditional sculptor in his own right.  In this short course, learn about the artist’s expressive figurative bronzes, examine the examples on view, and explore Rodin’s influence of American artists.  Quoting the Rodin Museum in Paris “His genius was to express inner truths of the human psyche, and his gaze penetrated beneath the external appearance of the world.”
