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.
