Tauranga Art Gallery: Remembering Rodin - 26th January - 24th March 2019

When: 26 January - 24 March 2019

Where: Tauranga Art Gallery, Cnr Wharf & Willow Sts

From Te Papa to Tauranga, Remembering Rodin features the bronze sculpture Eve; by Auguste Rodin, dating back to 1882.

Accompanying Rodin’s sculpture is a large, opulent porcelain vase, presented to the New Zealand Services by the Prime Minister of France and a friend of Rodin, Georges Clemenceau in 1919.

French sculptor Auguste Rodin (1840-1917) is one of the world’s most famous artists whose work had a huge influence on modern art, setting the scene for 20th-century modernism.

Among his most well-known works are The Age of Bronze (1876), The Thinker (1880) and The Kiss (1882).

This exhibition is a rare opportunity to experience his legacy in person and admire an example of his work that has been appreciated by fellow artists, experts, scholars and connoisseurs for many years.
