Rodin, Cut-outs

6 November 2018 - 7 April 2019

If Rodin remains in the public eye a sculptor, his drawings are, as he says, “the key to my work”. The exhibition “Rodin, Cut-outs”, reveals to the public nearly three hundred drawings. The particularity of about hundred drawings lies within the cutting of figures and their eventual assembly to recreate couples. Playing with the space of these bodies, this process reveals bold cut-out silhouettes and a dynamism of a great modernity. It is the discovery of this exhibition and the announcement of one of the innovative modes of expression of the 20th century.
