Rodin "The Human Experience" Jepson Center, Savannah, GA

Auguste Rodin (French, 1840–1917) was deeply inspired by tradition yet rebelled against its idealized forms, introducing innovative practices that paved the way for modern sculpture. 
 Monumental Head of Jean D'Aire
The Gates of Hell (Back Wall). Rodin sculpted a universe of great passion and tragedy, a world of imagination that exceeded the mundane reality of everyday existence.
The hallmarks of Rodin's style—his affinity for the partial figure, his focus on formal qualities and relationships rather than on narrative structure, and his desire to retain the marks of the sculptural process on his finished works—were revolutionary in his time.

 When I was young I learned a lot about the perception of modern art from studying Rodin, the power of sculpture and how deeply moving it can be.
