Rodin and Women: Muses, Sirens, Lovers

Selections from the Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Collections

January 18–March 29, 2020

Opening Reception: Sunday, January 19, 3–5 p.m.

Auguste Rodin (1840–1917) is considered to be the greatest sculptor since Michelangelo. This exhibition of 40 bronzes explores the complex biblical, mythical, allegorical, and secular associations surrounding the image of women. His highly expressive works capture the idea of woman as religious ideal, as patriotic symbol, and as representation of love.
