Rodin: Evolution of a Genius

Nov 21, 2015 – Mar 13, 2016, 2015 | Altria and New Market Galleries, Level LL

Organized by the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts and the Musée Rodin in Paris, this exhibition will feature nearly 200 works by the greatest sculptor of the 19th and early 20th centuries: Auguste Rodin. Revealing the evolving output of this genius of sculpture, the exhibition examines his techniques, materials, models and assistants, and explores the extraordinary working process behind some of his best known works. Auguste Rodin completely revitalized the very language of sculpture with his passion for the creative act. Fragile plasters as well as patinated bronzes, marble figures, astonishing ceramics and never-before-exhibited photographs all attest to this creative intensity, with much of the work presented in North America for the first time.

$15 adults
$12 seniors 65+
$10 students with ID and youth (7-17)
VMFA Members and children 6 & under FREE
