This fall the Cantor Arts Center will present a reinstallation of its exceptional collection of sculpture by Auguste Rodin (France, 1840-1917) to mark the centenary of this unparalleled artist's death. Drawing from the Cantor's internationally recognized holdings of more than 200 works executed in bronze, plaster, terra-cotta, wax, and stone, this project re-envisions all three of the museum's Rodin galleries. The Susan and John Diekman Rotunda, which features Rodin's most famous sculpture, "The Thinker," will become a more open, informative, and welcoming space for museum visitors. The Eugenie B. Taylor Gallery will introduce Rodin's life and artistic vision through a selection of portrait busts and early achievements, such as "The Age of Bronze," which boldly declared Rodin's approach to expressive naturalism when it debuted in Paris in 1877. Finally, the Rodin Gallery will be devoted to exploring his greatest monument projects, including "The Gates of Hell" and "The Burghers of Calais," while also considering the artist's working processes and use of the fragmented body to convey emotional states.
