'Rodin - Genius at Work' The biggest Rodin exhibition opened its doors


21 November 2016

Featuring more than 140 sculptures and 20 works on paper, Rodin - Genius at Work will be the largest Rodin exhibition ever to take place in the Netherlands.

Auguste Rodin (1840–1917) is the greatest and most influential sculptor of the modern era. His works do not simply represent idealised forms of the human body, but also bear traces of the creative process. Rodin - Genius at Work features plaster and bronze sculptures, including famous works like The Thinker and Balzac, as well as marble figures, ceramics, and never-before-exhibited photographs, illustrating the breadth of the artist’s creativity. The show also reveals the unique working process behind several of his most famous works, such as The Kiss.
The Rodin exhibition is curated by the Musée Rodin in Paris and the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts in Canada.
