Lecture: Rodin and the Americans

Auguste Rodin, the most famous sculptor of his day, not only appealed to sophisticated American collectors but also had a profound influence on American artists, beginning in the 1890s and persisting for decades after Rodin's death in 1917. This exhibition is the first to examine the scope of this influence.

Two speakers present context for the works on view in the exhibition. Bernard Barryte, the Center’s curator of European art, discusses Rodin's life and works, his rise to fame, and the spread of his reputation. Roberta Tarbell, professor of art history emerita, Rutgers University, and contributor to the exhibition's catalogue, speaks about the American artists who were directly or indirectly influenced by Rodin in their own work.
