Ecstasies - Auguste Rodin on Paper
Auguste Rodin (1840–1917) is primarily known for his dramatic sculptures depicting human figures. However, Rodin was also a prolific and multi-faceted draughtsman who explored the extensive potential inherent in paper as artistic medium. Rodin himself emphasised the importance of his work on paper: “It’s very simple. My drawings are the key to my work.”
The exhibition showcase Rodin’s unique work as a draughtsman, relating his drawings to his work as a sculptor.
