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.
