Rodin & Dance: The Essence of Movement

20 October 2016 – 22 January 2017

The Courtauld Gallery, Somerset House, Strand, London

Rodin & Dance: The Essence of Movement is the first major exhibition to explore Rodin’s fascination with dance and bodies in extreme acrobatic poses. It focuses on the series of small scale experimental sculptures known as the Dance Movements. These leaping twisting figures in terracotta and plaster are presented alongside a series of remarkable drawings in which Rodin explored movement and new forms of dance.

Organised in collaboration with the Musée Rodin, Paris.
