Sculpture and Drawings by Auguste Rodin

February 14, 1960 - March 12, 1960

Auguste Rodin has had a greater influence on the sculpture of our century than any other man. Like his contemporaries, the Impressionist painters, his art has continued to offer a source of forms for artists of later generations even though these artists may have very different ideas to express. The display includes 18 pieces of sculpture as well as numerous drawings and watercolors. Except for one work in marble all of the sculptures are in bronze. For the privilege of showing the art of Rodin at Colby College we are grateful to the World House Galleries, New York, and to the Friends of Art at Colby.
