The museum owns some Rodin sculptures, among it one of worldwide only four over-lifesize plaster casts of Jean d´Aire. In the Alfred Stieglitz Collection, it also holds a series of 20 nude watercolors from Rodin´s later period. Because of the fragility of the material, these drawings are not displayed very often.
