Rodin at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts
As my more faithful readers will know already, I’m pretty seriously into Rodin. There is a fantastic touring Rodin show that is currently being exhibited at he Montreal Museum of Fine Arts / Musée des Beaux-Arts de Montréal. This show is really fascinating in that special consideration is taken in showing how works and themes are developed across media, interpreted in different scales, and how Rodin’s work employed a lot of assemblage and thematic repetition. You really get a better understanding of his overall ouevre in viewing this huge collection!
Anyhow, the show is on until October 18 so I very much recommend that you visit if you get a chance, it an exceptionally well-curated show that has something for the most casual fan of sculpture to the most specifically obsessed Rodin student.
Anyway I love seeing other artists’ process in action and find it really inspiring. I just finished this sketcharoo inspired by one of the sculptures I saw.
Here’s a pile of photos I took at the show, on the Grey not Grey Facebook page that you should already be following but if you’re not, well dang, there you go.
