Rodin: rethinking the fragment

10 August – 27 October 2018

A British Museum Partnership Spotlight Loan.

An opportunity to see one of Auguste Rodin’s best-known works – The Thinker.

This exhibition explores how Rodin, the originator of modern sculpture, was inspired by art of ancient Greece and Rome.

The Thinker is on loan from the Burrell Collection in Glasgow, alongside three objects from the British Museum. It also runs parallel with the Elisabeth Frink Fragility and Power exhibition. Rodin was the greatest influence on Frink’s work.

The exhibition follows Rodin and the art of ancient Greece at the British Museum, 26 April to 29 July 2018.

Generously supported by the Dorset Foundation in memory of Harry M Weinrebe.
