(Tickets are available from the V&A)
In November 1914 the highly celebrated French sculptor recognised the bravery of the British troops fighting alongside their French allies with a gift of eighteen of his sculptures to the V&A. This one day symposium considers both the gift’s context and Rodin’s impact on the development of British sculpture.
The symposium is supported by Bowman Sculpture whose current exhibition is ‘Rodin – in Private Hands’ (until 31st July). Among the leading academics, museum curators, critics and contemporary artists taking part are Daniel Silver (Sculptor), Antoinette Le Normand-Romain (Director General, Institut National d’Histoire de l’Art), Alicia Robinson (Senior Curator of Sculpture, V&A) and, of course, Robert Bowman.
