Rodin: Truth Form Life / Selections from the Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Collections

The exhibition Rodin: Truth Form Life / Selections from the Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Collections will be on display at the Jundt Art Museum from September 8, 2018 to January 5, 2019.  By the early 20th century, Auguste Rodin was regarded by many as the greatest sculptor since Michelangelo. Rejecting 19th-century academic traditions that dictated what was “proper” in art, Rodin used sculpture made from hard marble and bronze to convey the vitality of the human spirit. His vigorous modeling emphasized his personal response to the subject, and he conveyed movement and emotion by inventing new poses and gestures. This special, traveling exhibition, organized by the Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Foundation, presents 22 of Rodin's important bronzes modeled between 1860 and 1910, plus three bronzes by Rodin in the permanent collection of the Jundt Art Museum.

This exhibition is supported in part by a Spokane Arts Grant Award.

The prohibitive cost of high profile, national traveling exhibitions makes them an unusual catch for Spokane. This special collection, organized by the Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Foundation, presents 22 of Rodin's most important bronzes modeled between 1860 and 1910. The SAGA selection panel would not miss the opportunity to assist in bringing this work to the region.
