This exhibition features over 30 bronze sculptures by Auguste Rodin (1840-1917), in addition to a selection of the artists books and original letters.  The works on view span the entire range of Rodin's artistic legacy from his early works The Mask of the Man with the Broken Nose and Saint John the Baptist Preaching, to studies for some of Rodin's major monuments such as The Gates of Hell and The Burghers of Calais.  Figures from some of his other monuments will also be featured, including Rodin's statues of the artists Claude Lorrain and Jules Bastien-Lepage. Each work will be paired with a quote by the artist to shed light on the great sculptor's working methods and artistic philosophies.

The exhibition is organized and circulated by the Iris & B. Gerald Cantor Foundation.
