RODIN, the great exhibition in Treviso

From 24 February to 3 June 2018 - FINISHED

Thanks to the indispensable collaboration with the Musée Rodin, Paris, this exhibition will show a total of 80 works, consisting of 50 of the most celebrated sculptures and 30 drawings.

It promises to be a fascinating event from the point of view of the significant, historical and critical survey, also pursued in the accompanying catalogue. Moreover, the Treviso exhibition will mark the end of the centennial year of Auguste Rodin’s death (1917). This is because the Parisian museum decided to include the Treviso show in the official program of exhibitions – there have been none in Italy so far – to celebrate this important anniversary in worldwide venues, such as the Grand Palais in Paris last spring and the Metropolitan Museum in New York at present. Treviso will thus be the only Italian venue in this international program.

The Musée Rodin will make available works by the greatest nineteenth-century sculptor, and one of the greatest artists of all time. All the most famous small to medium-format works will be on show and even several large sculptures, including some to be installed in the cloisters of Santa Caterina. The exhibition will thus be an opportunity to see works that have deeply influenced the history of sculpture since the second half of the nineteenth century: from The Thinker to The Kiss, The Gates of Hell, and The Burghers of Calais. These titles alone already reveal the exceptional nature of the event.


Rodin Exhibition Treviso

The entire biographical and artistic story of the great sculptor will be explored in the Treviso exhibition, also through letters and documents, so as to situate him at the center of the art scene in France and Europe from the late nineteenth century to the first two decades of  the twentieth century. There will be a special focus on the influence of Italian culture on Rodin in the creation of his works: from Donatello to Michelangelo, and Bernini, and, of course, his crucial interest in Dante’s Divine Comedy.
