Major exhibition of experimental works reveals a radical side to French sculptor Auguste Rodin.
Rodin, best known for his bronze and marble sculptures, was also a modeller who captured movement, emotion, light and volume in pliable materials. Unlike his predecessors, his finished works include traces of their creation, challenging conventional conceptions of beauty.
Featuring over 150 works, many of which have not been seen outside of France before, this unique collaboration with the Musée Rodin, will offer insight into Rodin’s processes, highlighting the crucial role of plaster in his work, exploring lesser-known pieces and new aspects of his masterpieces.
Part of The EY Tate Arts Partnership. Exhibition organised by Tate Modern and Musée Rodin, Paris.
