An exhibition in celebration of 100 years: Auguste Rodin (1840 – 1917)

Coinciding with the centenary of Auguste Rodin’s death in November 1917, the exhibition aims to underline his enduring sculptural legacy with significant works ranging from the early years to his late abstracted figures. Although Rodin is generally considered the progenitor of modern sculpture, he did not set out to rebel against the past. He was schooled traditionally, took a craftsman-like approach to his work, and desired academic recognition, although was never accepted into Paris’s foremost school of art.

The exhibition of over thirty works is curated for Canary Wharf Group by Iain Michael Brunt, and includes work from a rare lifetime cast of the artist’s famed Eternal Spring (conceived in 1884) as well as a selection of his most renowned pieces such as The Thinker and The Kiss. The exhibition will also include a number of drawings rarely unseen in public.

Exhibition Tour: Monday 2 October, 6.30-7.15pm, FREE
