Rodin & Dance: The Essence of Movement at The Courtauld Institute of Art

  • The Courtauld Institute of Art Strand London, England United Kingdom (map)

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, which were found in the artist’s studio after his death. 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.
