The Kiss by Rodin.
Paolo and Francesca are about to kiss, in that moment of anticipation that makes it all the more sensual. I have seen this sculpture many times but it captivates every time.

Lean this way.

This is a beautiful bit of curation, the double leaning figures, One an Ancient Roman torsue, twisting and stretching, the other a Rodin sculpture of a young man, leaning with casual armless grace.
Thank you to the #BritishMuseum and the #royaldrawingschool for yesterday's beautifully thought through, inspiring and stimulating day of lectures and conversations, exploring how different artists, including Rodin, have used and been inspired by the collections at the British Museum.

Iris, Messenger of the Gods, 1895
Bronze
.
And part of the frieze of the Parthenon that would've inspired him
.
This is Rodin's final version of Iris. Like the Parthenon goddess of the air she appears to defy gravity.
Rodin often used dancers as models. He must have worked from a dancer lying on her back to achieve this pose. By placing the statue upright the viewer is confronted by a dynamic, liberated figure rebelling in an astonishing leap.

The Rodin exhibition at @britishmuseum was absolutely beautiful. How someone can make lumps of rock look like flowing, swishy fabrics is just magical, and his positive is an utter delight. ❤️

Best in show.

Rarely seen beautiful assemblage by Rodin.
.
.
Throughout his career Rodin playfully used the technique of assemblage, bringing together different objects, whole or fragmentary. From the 1890’s he became increasingly experimental, creating strangely poetic new compositions.

Horse of Selene, from the Parthenon and currently on show at the Rodin exhibition at the British Museum. Rodin was enormously influenced by the art of Ancient Greece. This was my favourite by far - it was made more than 2000 years ago (438 BC) with very crude tools and it is so incredibly expressive. That such care would be taken to capture just what an animal might be feeling, especially when the human heads of the time look stilted, takes my breath away. The angle it is set at, is also very unusual. In the words of Rodin, talking about the work of Pheidias - it is impossible to imagine anything more beautiful.

Dispelling my Monday blues with some beautiful masterpiece by Rodin ✨🙌🏼.
.
The Kiss .
Auguste Rodin 1888.
.
The Kiss is inspired by an episode of The Divine Comedy, an influential epic poem by the Italian poet Dante Alighieri (1265-1321). Lost in a moment of reckless passion, Paolo & Francesca are about to be discovered and killed by Francesca’s husband, Paolo’s brother. Rodin’s sculpture soon shed it’s literary reference to become a universal image of a kiss. The two figures melt into one another - anonymous and passionate. Their bodies express their irresistible mutual attraction. The privacy of the moment, the nakedness of their desire, and their disregard for the danger of being found out, cast us in the role of voyeur.

(Rodin and the Art of Ancient Greece, British Museum)
.
God Damn It...Rodin, the archetypal, elemental, unabashed, explosive sensualist. Every time I see his work this is reconfirmed. Such sensitivity. Such appetite. In antiquity he found much of what he needed. The rest he extracted from living flesh.
.
This pairing of Rodin and ‘the antique’ that he so loved powerfully illustrates the kinship and endless relevance of ‘then’ to ‘now’ (which I was groping with in my talk on Leach’s old Moon Jar at the Fitzwilliam Museum two days ago). Is ‘past’ and ‘present’ just another unhelpful, misleading, received binary construct? I am tending more and more to reject binaries...
.
Seeing the Parthenon Sculptures isolated in this ‘new’ context somehow heightens their sheer majesty and utter corporeal power. Solar Plexus Punch. Chakra re-shuffle. Breathless.
.
The Body. The Body. The Body.
.
• Surely the most magnificent right buttock in the history of human artistic endeavour: Ilissos, from the Parthenon. 5th century BCE. Jaw dropping (the buttock and the sculpture). Perhaps only just rivalled in the pert buttock department by Michelangelo’s David? I have yet to see that ‘in the flesh’ but the V&A’s cast is pretty damned good.
.
• And (last image) Rodin’s bricolage, known as his ‘assemblages’: a free-form mash-up of his plaster maquettes/miniatures with his collection of antique pottery. I have loved these for years. They give me heart.
.
The-search-made-material. Awe Inspiring. Goosebumps. Humbling. Heartening.

The Ancient is now. Now is The Ancient.

I never really got the Burgers of Calais before, but I feel for them today. So strange how ones understanding and taste in art changes.

Such a treat to be this close up to the River God of Ilissos aka figure A! You can really feel the weight of his chest, and sense he is about to get up. I spent about 10 mins with him.

At times hard to tell which is the Rodin and which is the ancient fragment... I haven't enjoyed an exhibition this much for years.
