Rodin and the Tradition of the Nude

Fri, Feb 26, 6:30–7:30 pm

Leslie Cheek Theater

Most of Auguste Rodin’s sculptures depict the naked human body. Join Dr. Mitchell Merling, Paul Mellon Curator and Head of the Department of European Art for this lecture, which will explore Rodin’s lifelong engagement with the subject. In-depth examination of such works as The Age of Bronze, The Thinker and The Kiss will reveal Rodin as one of art history’s most profound and original artists. This lecture is inspired by Rodin: Evolution of a Genius, on view through March 13.
