Rodin Rediscovered

Auguste Rodin

Dimanche, 28 Juin, 1981 - Dimanche, 2 Mai, 1982

366 catalogued works from about 40 American and European public and private collections filled spaces on each of the East Building's 4 levels. The exhibition recreated on the Upper Level a typical Paris Salon of the 1870s filled with 29 sculpture, continued downward through the building with 9 further sections devoted to different themes of Auguste Rodin's work, and ended on the Concourse Level with a new 8-ton bronze cast of The Gates of Hell with its 186 figures. This was the largest exhibition ever devoted to Rodin.
