Lecture by Judith Sobol

Edith Stein Hall 133: At the peak of his career Auguste Rodin (French, 1840 – 1917) was regarded as the greatest sculptor since Michelangelo. Rejecting Nineteenth-Century academic traditions that dictated what was ‘proper’ in art, Rodin made sculpture that conveyed the vitality of the human spirit. His vigorous modeling emphasized his personal response to the subject, and he conveyed movement and emotion by inventing new poses. He created his own form of artistic expression that was grounded in the world he saw around him rather than in the past.Judith Sobol, curator of exhibitions and collections for the Iris & B. Gerald Cantor Collections, will give a lecture entitled "Rodin and Modernism" in conjunction with the exhibition Rodin: Truth, Form, Life on view in the Cantor Art Gallery. Open to the Public
