Auguste Rodin changed the art of sculpture for all time. His works were innovative and controversial, although he is regarded as one of the last of the classical sculptors.
The exhibition features over 50 of Rodin’s sculptures in various versions and materials, including several of his best-known works such as The Kiss, The Thinker and Je suis belle. It describes how Rodin endlessly reused and varied his motifs in his search for perfect expression. He developed an aesthetic bordering on the abstract, in which the form, the material and the artistic process are each valued in their own right. In Stockholm, the exhibition will also feature around 20 works by Scandinavian sculptors influenced by Rodin, including Carl Milles and Carl Eldh.
