From Te Papa to Blenheim, Remembering Rodin features the bronze sculpture Eve; by Auguste Rodin, dating back to 1882.

Accompanying Rodin’s sculpture is a large, opulent porcelain vase, presented to the New Zealand Services by the Prime Minister of France and a friend of Rodin, Georges Clemenceau in 1919. French sculptor Auguste Rodin (1840-1917) is one of the world’s most famous artists whose work had a huge influence on modern art, setting the scene for 20th-century modernism.

Among his most well-known works are The Age of Bronze (1876), The Thinker (1880) and The Kiss (1882). This exhibition is a rare opportunity to experience his legacy in person and admire an example of his work that has been appreciated by fellow artists, experts, scholars and connoisseurs for many years.

Exhibition curated by Dr Mark Stocker.
