Presenter: Janet Mandel, Arts Educator
Auguste Rodin was the Moses of modern sculpture, leading it out of the wilderness of 19th
Century academic constraints and paving the way for the modernists of the next generation. In this illustrated lecture, his work— sublime, pure, virile and unsentimental— will be examined in the context of his fascinating life story.
