Rodin: The Shape of Genius

Whether you are new to the History of Art world or someone who wishes to brush up on their existing knowledge, these lectures set in the award winning gallery and museum, might be just what you were looking for. This series of Art Talks will explore sculpture and well-known sculptors.

Melanie is and artist, art tutor and Lecturer. Peter Scott has been a guide and lecturer at Tate Britain and Tate Modern for 15 years.

Auguste Rodin (1840-1917), one of the most famous sculptors of any period, is known for the vigour of his treatment of the human form. Peter Scott will illustrate that aspect of his sculpture, but also look at Rodin’s lesser-known works on paper, which have so many echoes in the work of later artists. As Rodin said: “It’s very simple, my drawings are the key to my work.” We will also consider some surprising elements of his working methods.
