The exhibit catalogue of the major exhibition on sculptor Auguste Rodin, organized by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Recognized as one of the greatest sculptors since the Renaissance, Rodin pioneered an approach to his art that aimed not only to capture the physicality of his subjects but also their psychology. Organized thematically, True Nature: Rodin and the Age of Impressionism delves into the Classical influences on Rodin’s sculpture, the artist’s focus on portraiture, and his exploration of movement and the human body.
Regarded as one of the foremost collections of Rodin's work and his fellow Impressionist and Post Impressionist contemporaries, LACMA's significant selection of work was donated by the immensely generous philanthropists and financiers, Iris and B. Gerald Cantor. This collection has been supplemented over the years by other donors, growing it to what you see today.
This catalogue concentrates on the bronzes and sculptures by Rodin himself, and features several photographic plates of pieces from the collection. It does not include the other Impressionists and artists presented in the show.
