From the Museum Website:

Estamos encantados de presentar la muestra Rodin en Buenos Aires, que ha sido posible gracias al Embajador de Francia, Paul Dijoud, el Consejero de Cooperación y Acción Cultural, Daniel Ollivier y la Agragada Cultural, Estelle Berruyer.
En este año que inicia el tercer milenio, esta es la tercera vez que nos asociamos a importantes museos del exterior: la primera con la Nationel Gallery de Canadá, luego con el Museo Reina Sofía de Madrid y ahora con el Museo Rodin de París.
La exposición es una de las más importantes del año porque Agustín Rodin (1840-1917), marca la introducción del modernismo, ya que este gran maestro francés lleva a cabo la ruptura con la estatuaria clásica y posibilita la apertura que se desarrollará en la escultura del siglo XX.

Es un orgullo para el Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes, tan alejado de París, trabajar en forma directa con el Museo Rodin, para exponer obras de este gran artista francés; y nos parece oportuno señalar que el diálogo con Rodín, lo inició el primer director de este Museo, Eduardo Schiaddino.
Por esa razón, Rodin regaló al Museo su escultura paradigmática El Beso, en 1908.(...)

La muestra está integrada por veintiséis obras de Rodin y cuarenta de los contemporáneos franceses, del Museo de Bellas Artes; junto a veintisiete esculturas y tres dibujos del Museo Rodin. Por razones obvias y de espacio no nos hemos propuesto acá escribir un trabajo académico sino solo una presentación en nombre del Museo.

From Rodin to Baselitz - The Torso in Modern Sculpture

The exhibition argues that regarding the torso as a finished work of art in itself began with Rodin, who questioned the tradition of the high finish of classical sculpture and instead presented morceaux, fragments, that should cointain as much truth as the whole figure. The torso was taken up by 20th century artists to work to represent the nude as well as an abstract meditation on form.

Next to the Palais du Luxembourg, the former Musée du Luxembourg, that once housed permanent nineteenth century sculpture and painting collections, is now a gallery presenting temporary exhibitions. The Eve figure, cast in 1911 for the Musée du Luxembourg, was deposed in the Musée Rodin in 1918.

Rodin in 1900:

In 1900, Rodin was invited to organize an exhibition of his work within the framework of the Paris World exhibition. For this purpose, Rodin had his own pavillion built at the Place de l'Alma. Paris. Rodin´s show has been re-created as closely as possible at the Musée du Luxembourg.

The display, put together by the Musée Rodin and the Reunion of National Museums in collaboration with the Senate and the Tokyo Shimbun, echoes the catalogue of the 1900 exhibition, which gathered together 168 sculptures and over 100 drawings and photographs. The collection of finished bronzes and plaster studies includes The Man with the Broken Nose to the portraits of Balzac and Victor Hugo, the monumental Gates to Hell and many studies of the female nude.

Camille Claudel: from the Shadow of Rodin





Singer Museum, LAREN (NH)

Oude Drift 1
NL - 1251 BS Laren NH

Tel. +31 - 35 - 53 15 656

The Singer Museum owes its original collection to the American collector and painter W.H. Singer. The collection is focused on Dutch and French Art of the 1880-1950 period. A great attraction is the sculpture garden (admission free) which shows, among others, Rodin´s Thinker.

The Singer Museum participated in the 1995 Dutch Rodin exhibition (see above). From 20 January till 22 April 2001, an exhibition on Camille Claudel and her relation to Rodin took place: From the Shadow of Rodin. The exhibition, organized in collaboration with Paul Claudel´s granddaughter Reine-Marie Paris, showed a number of recently re-discovered Claudel works, along with some Rodin bronzes (Eve, Triumphant Youth).
