"Rodin, the light of Antiquity" in Arles - MP2013
At the Musée départemental Arles antique, the exhibition "Rodin, the light of Antiquity" will reveal the imprint of Antiquity, which has become invisible but is nevertheless always present in the sculptor's work. This unique approach reveals the perpetual back-and-forth between ancient times and contemporary creation.
Over 250 pieces of artwork will be displayed in an area of 800 m² to celebrate this dialogue between past and present. Sculptures, assemblies and drawings by Rodin demonstrate the artistic fusion central to his work.
Meanwile, 132 antique pieces that were central to the artist's life and thought are presented alongside Le Penseur (The Thinker), L'Age d'airain (The Age of Bronze), L'Homme qui marche (The Walking Man), Le Monument à Victor Hugo (Monument To Victor Hugo), Eve, La Centauresse (The Female Centaur) and others.
The museum is open every day from 10am to 6pm except on tuesdays.
Closed on tuesdays, January 1, May 1, November 1 December 25.
