FLINT — In commemoration of the hundredth anniversary of the death of sculptor Auguste Rodin (1840-1917), the Flint Institute of Arts presents Rodin: The Human Experience/Selections from the Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Collections. At the peak of his career, Rodin was regarded as the greatest sculptor since Michelangelo.
Leaving behind 19th-century academic traditions, Rodin focused on conveying the vitality of the human spirit. His vigorous modeling emphasized his personal response to the subject, and he captured movement and emotion by altering traditional poses and gestures. Rodin’s sculpture is often considered a crucial link between traditional and modern art.
