Rodin exhibit comes to NC Museum of Art

RALEIGH — The loan of ten works from the personal collection of Iris Cantor will complement the North Carolina Museum of Art’s existing Rodin collection.
Ten additional sculptures by the celebrated French artist will be installed by Sept. 2 alongside other works by Rodin.
A rare marble sculpture of Eve and a monumental sized bronze of Eve, standing 68 inches tall, will join the Museum’s smaller Eve. The Final Study for the Monument to Balzac complements the two studies for the same commission on view, and the Monumental Torso of the Falling Man will be installed near the NCMA’s The Falling Man and I Am Beautiful (Je suis belle).
Three of Rodin’s Burghers of Calais will join the two large Burghers already on view.
The remaining works on loan include Walking Man, Torso of the Walking Man and La France, Rodin’s portrait of his lover Camille Claudel.
The majority of the works will be on view at the Museum for a minimum of two years; the marble Eve and the Final Study for the Monument to Balzac have been promised for at least six months.
The NC Museum of Art is located at 110 Blue Ridge Road, Raleigh. For more information, go to www.ncartmuseum.org
