Rodin: The Human Experience opens at the Jepson Center, located at 207 W. York St., on Sept. 1, 2017. Rodin: The Human Experience presents a selection of 32 figures in bronze by Auguste Rodin (1840-1917), the French sculptor who left behind 19th century academic traditions to focus on conveying the passion and vitality of the human spirit. Considered in his lifetime to be the greatest sculptor since Michelangelo, Rodin exerted a tremendous influence on artists of subsequent generations, such as Matisse, Brancusi, and Maillol.
Rodin was distinguished for his belief that part of a figure, such as a torso or a hand, could by itself convey meaning and be a complete work of art. His use of broken sculptural fragments in new works, called marcottage, can be seen as a precursor to today’s art of assemblage. Telfair Museums will present this exhibition in honor of the centennial of Rodin’s death.
This exhibition has been organized and made possible by the Iris & B. Gerald Cantor Foundation; it is funded in part by Chatham Capital Group, SunTrust Bank, and the City of Savannah’s Department of Cultural Affairs.
