Rodin. Drawings And Cut-Outs

THE EXHIBITION

Notes that turn into sketches, sketches that become cut-outs, cut-outs that lead to sculptures… This experimentation not only acted as the artist’s mental creation process, but was also a playful activity, sometimes with no specific end purpose.

The exhibition focuses on Rodin’s facet as an illustrator. For the first time in Spain, it includes a very special particularity: many of the sketches in the collection become cut-outs where the artist experimented with movements in space. These experiments also sometimes led him to the world of sculpture, thus establishing an important nexus between the two disciplines.

These cut-outs belonged to the artist’s private life; neither he nor the critics mentioned them at the time, and Rodin only exhibited one of these cut-out figures while still living, which is included in this exhibition.

The exhibition has 91 works, of which 76 are sketches (of which 36 are cut-outs) and 15 are sculptures to help better understand the genius and innovative methods of expression of the father of modern sculpture.

Exhibition organised in collaboration with the Rodin Museum, Paris (France)
