Don’t miss out on the final day to immerse yourself in Auguste Rodin’s world of Impressionist sculptures at Oklahoma City Museum of Art.
For many local art fans, discovering Auguste Rodin has been an enriching experience. Born in 1840 and active until 1917, Rodin is often called one of the most important artists in the Impressionist movement. For those who have studied or enjoyed art, the path to appreciating Rodin can be long but rewarding.
Starting with an interest in Western American art and figures like Charles M. Russell, one might then discover artists like Claude Monet. This can lead to exploring friendships Monet had with other artists of his time, including Rodin. And it’s not just about the paintings; Rodin’s sculptures invite deep thinking and have been the subject of much study.
The artworks on display in this exhibit show a wide range of human emotions, from hope to despair. One highlight is Rodin’s portrayal of Eve, created around 1881 but only cast for this exhibit in 1968. Inspired by the works of Michelangelo, Rodin’s pieces show a deep understanding of human emotions and conditions.
If you have some extra time after visiting the Rodin exhibit, consider exploring the museum’s other offerings. A permanent exhibit featuring the works of Dale Chihuly is also available and offers a different but equally enriching experience, especially for children.
