Rodin Sculpture

Rodin
Truth, Form, Life

Walsh Gallery, Quick Center for the Arts

September 13 – December 21, 2019

This small but powerful retrospective called RODIN: TRUTH, FORM, LIFE is comprised of 22 bronzes. Visitors to this exhibition will come face to face with the powerful emotions embedded in the works of the “father” of modern sculpture. Rodin’s focus on depicting human emotion and intimate moments upended the world of traditional sculpture in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. His innovative processes of repetition and multiplication broke boundaries, and his influence endures today.

Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Mary Hamilton

Prints from the Age of Rodin

Bellarmine Hall Galleries

October 4 - December 21, 2019

Presented in conjunction with RODIN: TRUTH, FORM, LIFE / Selections from the Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Collections (Walsh Gallery, September 13 – December 21, 2019), Prints from the Age of Rodin features lithographs and etchings by Rodin’s contemporaries, ranging from views of the urban environment of Paris, to portraits of artists, writers, and thinkers, to theater playbills and advertisements.

Drawn from the museum’s permanent collection, as well as selected items on loan from the Jundt Art Museum of Gonzaga University, the exhibition includes works by Berthe Morisot, Henri Toulouse-Lautrec, and Félix Vallotton that illuminate the rich cultural atmosphere of Paris during the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
