2017 marks the 100th anniversary of August Rodin’s death, and museums around the world are honoring the centenary with special exhibitions and educational activities.
The installation centers around the theme of passionate embrace and features marbles, bronzes, terracottas and plasters created by Rodin over a 30-year period.
The museum galleries are filled with some of Rodin’s most notable sculptures, including The Minotaur, Eternal Springtime and Youth Triumphant. Each sculpture was created to evoke a strong emotional connection with the audience.
The centerpiece of the exhibition is The Kiss, a large marble structure that depicts adulterous lovers.
