Rodin – 100 Years

In 1917, the Cleveland Museum of Art’s acquired its first Rodin, the monumental Thinker that sits at the building’s entrance, its lower portion mangled by a bomb that knocked it off its base in 1970. The permanent collection now includes more than 40 works spanning the artist’s career and representing a variety of media. A selection of these appears in Rodin – 100 Years, the museum’s contribution to this year’s commemorations of the artist’s life and work. Among the highlights is an oversized plaster sculpture of the head of one of the Burghers of Calais.
