The Victoria & Albert Museum in London is the world's largest museum of the decorative arts, comprising 145 galleries, including national collections of sculpture, furniture, fashion and photographs.

In May 1902, Rodin´s bronze sculpture John the Baptist was installed here, and Rodin personally attended the ceremony and viewed the Museum´s collection. Major exhibitions of Rodin´s work took place at the Grosvenor House, London in July 1914 (Art français) and at the Royal Scottish Academy in Edinburgh in 1915. Rodin donated a great number of the exhibited works to the Vicoria and Albert Museum. Many of these works were transferred to the Tate Gallery around 1937, then to the Bethnal Green Museum around 1970 and returned to the Victoria and Albert Museum by 1983.

The V&AM has a very sophisticated Macromedia-driven Website with a search function for 2000 images of items in the collection.

This Image Database does not mention this substantial Rodin collection, but Mererid Robert, Curatorial Assistant at the Museum´s Sculpture Dept. was so kind to send me detailed information on the 22 sculptures. Moreover, the Museum has four drawings by Rodin and several prints after drawings by Rodin.
