We made it just in time to see #rodinandtheartofancientgreece at the #britishmuseum . Rodin collected over 6,000 antiquities - even building a museum to house his growing collection. It is impossible to deny their influence on him & the power they still have #rodin #sculptures #parthenon #ancientgreece

"The Faun is, is he not, like the god of this rural spot? The daylight takes pleasure in caressing his amorous hips" Auguste Rodin, 1907 - on this Torso of a Satyr, Roman, AD 100-125. @britishmuseum #rodinandtheartofancientgreece

Rodin at the British Museum. One of the assemblages he made using the small figures originally sculpted for his monumental ‘Gates of Hell’, set into the Ancient Greek and Pre-Columbian vessels that he collected. #rodin#sculpture#britishmuseum#rodinandtheartofancientgreece#assemblage#fragment#vial#figure#humanform#maquette#rodinmuseum#antiquity#balance

“Per più fïate li occhi ci sospinse
quella lettura, e scolorocci il viso;
ma solo un punto fu quel che ci vinse.

Quando leggemmo il disïato riso
esser basciato da cotanto amante,
questi, che mai da me non fia diviso,

la bocca mi basciò tutto tremante.
Galeotto fu 'l libro e chi lo scrisse:
quel giorno più non vi leggemmo avante.” “Full many a time our eyes together drew ⁠
That reading, and drove the color from our faces;
⁠But one point only was it that o'ercame us.
Whenas we read of the much longed-for smile
⁠Being by such a noble lover kissed,
⁠This one, who ne'er from me shall be divided, ⁠
Kissed me upon the mouth all palpitating.
⁠Galeotto was the book and he who wrote it.
⁠That day no farther did we read therein." Dante Alighieri

Rodin lived in his own personal version of ancient Greece, both figuratively and literally - amongst his selected ancient pieces assembled and laid out in his garden at Meudon. He never visited the real Greece. Yet, in particular inspired by the Greek exhibits in the British Museum, he constructed a world, in which he felt he communicated with the 5th century BCE sculptor of the Parthenon, Pheidias. Whilst I am not convinced by certain of Rodin’s ideas, such as his opposition to reconstruction of the Parthenon after an earthquake in 1849 - he respected the ravages of time whereas I would say these do not show the work as the artist intended, nevertheless the radical, twisting, visceral emotion and raw power which Rodin manages to convey in his work is sublime.
Set in his haunt and inspiration of the British Museum, this exhibition ‘Rodin and the art of ancient Greece’ reveals the dialogue between ancient Greek art and modern Expressionism.
Last chance to catch it before it closes 29th July, this week!

Day 196/365
Rodin and the ancient art of Greece exhibition

Having walked through rooms and rooms of male nudes casually airing their marble bits I was delighted to see Rodin's 'IRIS, MESSENGER OF THE GODS' (right), his version of the statue of Iris from the west pediment of the Parthenon (left). Look how triumphant she is, feelin' the breeze!

I can’t exactly call it a day off because I’m always thinking about work in some shape or form but felt very inspired by Rodin and the Art of Ancient Greece at the British Museum. Maybe my new plaster shed might be dealing with something bigger than a carved handle!

One of the best things about this small show was to get really close to the Phidias’ sculpture for the Parthenon. Utterly breathtaking @britishmuseum @museerodinparis #rodinandtheartofancientgreece #classicism #hellenistic #sculptra
