Symposium on Auguste Rodin
Call 215-898-3617 for more information.
Auguste Rodin (1840-1917) is recognized as one of the greatest sculptors since the Italian Renaissance. His pioneering work deconstructed the body as fragments or partial figures that reveal human vitality, pathos, and beauty. His impressionistic modeling, sensuality, and modernist approach to public sculpture brought him both scandal and success. His many public commissions, such as The Burghers of Calais (1884-1886), broke all 19th-century French academic traditions.
