The Anderson Collection of Modern Sculpture
7 Oct. 2000 - 15 Jan. 2001

This exhibition showed some sculptures by Rodin.

From the Website text:

"The sculptures on view here were some of the first works collected by the Andersons and served as their introduction to the history of modernism. Looking at nudes by Auguste Rodin and Jacques Lipchitz helped the Andersons appreciate the different approaches and subtle nuances of each artist's working style. The Andersons closely investigated the details of each work, taking a particular interest in those parts that felt close to the artist and the moment of creation. With Rodin's Walking Man (1880-85), for example, Mr. Anderson likes to point out the thumb-sized crook on the man's back, which surely served as a resting place for the artist's hand while he worked on the sculpture."

This exhibition was organized by Dorothy Kosinski, from the Dallas Museum of Arts and shown in the SF MoMA.

Article by Kathy Zimmerer

"A treat is in store for Auguste Rodin fans in the form of this exhibit of posthumously cast bronze figures organized in conjunction with the Musée Rodin in Paris. Of eighteen works on display there are several large pieces from major commissions as well as figures and fragments from his notorious and powerful The Gates of Hell."
