“Sculpture is the art of the hole and the lump.”
“Thus the forms and attitudes of a human being reveal the emotions of his soul. The body always expresses the spirit of which it is the shield. And for those who know how to look, nudity offers the richest meaning”
de Sarthe Gallery, Hong Kong, in collaboration with Nevill Keating Pictures, Ltd is proud to present a major collection of sculptures by the world renowned artist, Auguste Rodin. This exhibition will focus on rare and iconic bronze sculptures which almost all were cast during the artist’s lifetime. The exhibition includes different versions of works such as, Le Penseur (The Thinker), Le Baiser (The Kiss), and Eternel Printemps (Eternal Springtime).
Francois-Auguste Rene Rodin, known as Auguste Rodin, is one of the best known sculptors to have ever lived and his popularity throughout his own lifetime is unusual in the art world. Whilst being acceptable an d still pushing the boundaries of modern art, Rodin became know n to many as the ‘father of modern sculpture.’ Today, Rodin is still held in high regard and his sculptures are among the most renowned in the world.
A detailed and fully illustrated catalogue will accompany the exhibition, and will include a preface by Mr. Jerome Le Blay, author of the catalogue raisonne on Rodin.
