Rodin: Evolution of a Genius at VMFA

Rodin: Evolution of a Genius at VMFA

 

On Thursday, November 3, 2015, Dolores and I took a day trip to Richmond, Virginia to visit the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, one of our favorite travel destinations. The current special exhibit is Rodin: Evolution of a Genius and this exhibit will be available through March 13, 2016. If you enjoy the work of Auguste Rodin, this is an exhibit that you do not want to miss. Use the link to learn more about the exhibit, to plan your visit and to reserve your tickets.

Photographs are allowed and we did photograph much of the exhibit but I will have to share those photographs at a future date since they are not yet on this computer.

 

“Organized by the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts and the Musée Rodin in Paris, this exhibition will feature nearly 200 works by the greatest sculptor of the 19th and early 20th centuries: Auguste Rodin. Revealing the evolving output of this genius of sculpture, the exhibition examines his techniques, materials, models and assistants, and explores the extraordinary working process behind some of his best known works.

Auguste Rodin completely revitalized the very language of sculpture with his passion for the creative act. Fragile plasters as well as patinated bronzes, marble figures, astonishing ceramics and never-before-exhibited photographs all attest to this creative intensity, with much of the work presented in North America for the first time.” - VMFA
