Rodin in the United States: Confronting the Modern Teacher Resource
Auguste Rodin (French, 1840–1917) is one of the most celebrated sculptors of the modern age, represented in museums and private collections across the globe. However, this was not always the case.From his first sculpture to enter an American museum in 1893 and culminating with his popular revival in the 1980s, this exhibition follows Rodin’s rise to eminence in the United States due in large part to the collectors, critics, and curators who helped make it happen. Educators are encouraged to use these key images and lesson resources before or after their students’ visit to the High Museum to help facilitate further learning and discussion.
