Roden. Muses, sirens, lovers

In the 1860s, when Auguste Rodin began creating sculptures, art was deeply rooted in the past and depicted stories from religion, history, and myths. By the beginning of his career in the 1890s, Roden turned sculpture into something that evokes emotions and imagination. By the time Roden died in 1917, he, thanks to his tremendous talent and remarkable work volume, made a revolution in sculpture. Today, his work is the most important link between traditional and modern art.

"Rodin: Muses, sirens, lovers“They explore the artist’s passion for depicting women. The exhibition presents about 40 female bronzes as models, love interests and artistic inspiration. These works tell the story of the importance of Rodin's sculpture for contemporary art and embody innovations that have broken with age-old traditions to pave the way to this day.
