"Victor Hugo vu par Rodin"

Musée des Beaux-Arts et d'Archéologie Besançon
15 septembre 2002 au 15 janvier 2003 en coproduction avec La Maison Victor Hugo, Place des Vosges à Paris

Le Musée des Beaux-Arts et d'Archéologie propose une exposition qui met en scène la perception de Victor Hugo par les hommes d'hier et d'aujourd'hui, et le culte, exceptionnel par son ampleur, qui lui a été rendu. Aucune exposition ne s'est attachée à mesurer le génie de Victor Hugo au travers du regard d'un autre génie, Rodin.

L’Antique est ma jeunesse - Musée Rodin

Les marbres grecs et romains de la collection 
d'Auguste Rodin

From the Musée Rodin Website

Upon the occasion of the completion of the catalogue of marble Greek and Roman statues collected by Auguste Rodin, the museum is presenting an insight into the sculptor's collection. Dozens of marble statues and copies in the Antique style, which were chosen from amongst 793 pieces of work, the majority of which are being exhibited for the first time, have been taken from the store rooms. Today they bear testimony, beyond their archaeological and aesthetic quality, to the passion of the artist for antique art, to his desire to possess in the last years of his life and to the links which he wove between his sculptures and the artwork of the past. From 1893 onwards, Rodin started to purchase antique objects from Parisian art-dealers, which he then exhibited in his new house in Meudon. More rarely, some were given to him by friends, artists or other collectors. At the same time, and as a reference to Antiquity, he designed his own figures, which he separated into groups, mutilating whole bodies and reassembling them in new compositions.
From his personal collection, Rodin wanted to create a didactic museum for young artists at the Villa des Brillants, and later at the hôtel Biron. He made this wish come true for posterity by donating his collection, together with the rest of his work, to the French state in 1916.

L'impressionismo e l'età di Van Gogh

Treviso: Veranstaltungs-Tipp für den Winter 2002-2003 in der Casa dei Carraresi:

eine Ausstellung über Vincent Van Gogh und seine Zeit.

Der Ausstellungszyklus, den Treviso dem Impressionismus gewidmet hat, findet im Winter 2002-2003 mit einer Ausstellung seine Fortsetzung, die als logische Folge des "La Nascita dell'impressionismo" (2000) bzw. "Monet. I luoghi della pittura" (2001) gilt. Thema ist der Zeitraum zwischen der ersten Impressionismus-Ausstellung im Atelier Nadar im Jahr 1874 und der letzten Ausstellung im Jahr 1886 bis zum Tod von Van Gogh im Jahr 1890, eine Zäsur zwischen einer Welt davor und einer anderen Welt, die sich zur endgültigen Bestätigung der französischen Kunst in jenen wunderbaren fünfzehn Jahren hin öffnet. Die Ausstellung "L'impressionismo e l'età di Van Gogh" umfasst rund 180 Werke, darunter Malereien, Pastelle, Zeichnungen, Aquarelle, Gravurarbeiten, Bildhauerei, Holzschnitzereien, Fotografien und historische Zeitschriften, welche die Revolution der neuen Kunst zur Gänze bezeugen. Untergliedert ist die Ausstellung in fünf Sektionen ("Impressionismo 1874-1882: l'affermazione e la maturità", "Impressionismo 1883-1890: l'ultimo tempo e la poetica puntinista", "L'idea simbolista", "Rodin e Medardo Rosso" und "Van Gogh"), die den Weg in diesen fünfzehn Jahren in puncto technischer und poetischer Entwicklung verdeutlichen. Hier stellen die Hauptvertreter dieser Kunstepoche aus: Jongkind, Boudin, Sisley, Renoir, Pissarro, Manet, Cézanne, Degas, Gaugin, neben den Bildhauern Rodin und Medardo Rosso. Überdies sind zwanzig Arbeiten von Van Gogh am Ende der Ausstellung zu sehen. Ein Weg, der auf das Ende des Impressionismus hinweist, als jeder dieser Protagonisten einen autonomen und unabhängigen Weg eingeschlagen hat und als Van Gogh seine neue Welt mit einer Tatkraft festigt, die ihn in die Mitte eines Weges stellt, der das Fundament der Kunst des 20. Jahrhunderts bildet.

"Rodin's Obsession: The Gates of Hell"

Selections from the Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Collection

"Rodin's Obsession: The Gates of Hell, Selections from the Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Collection consists of approximately thirty works relating to Rodin's most challenging and perhaps most important endeavor.

The Gates of Hell (1880-about 1900) was Rodin's first large-scale public project and consequently his most ambitious commission. Originally conceived as an entrance for a museum of decorative arts to be built in Paris, The Gates of Hell features hundreds of figures modeled in high relief and in the round. Many of Rodin's most famous independent sculptures, such as The Thinker, The Kiss, and The Three Shades, were derived from this overwhelming composition. Although the museum of decorative arts was never built, Rodin continued to work on the project for many years."

Like nearly all shows featuring posthumous Rodin casts, this exhibition was attacked by the Florida lithographer and gallerist Gary Arseneau.
