Dreams from the ashes: Rodin and Jeanclos
The interlacing of works by Auguste Rodin and Georges Jeanclos in this exhibition, which greatly resonate with one another, elicits most interesting insights into the work of either artist, and into the conditions of their creative process. Each sculptor is represented by works in the material, for which he is best known: bronze for Rodin and clay for Jeanclos.
Eike D. Schmidt - Director of le Gallerie degli Uffizi of Firenze (extract from the exhibition's catalog)
This exhibition will give the opportunity to a conversation between those two great minds who continually looked for a kind of truth in Art with the necessary sincerity required for the creator to shape the living.
Hugues Herpin, Head of the operations and events service at the Musée Rodin (Paris) (extract from the exhibition's catalog)
Rodin and Jeanclos, two extraordinary artists who have marked the sculpture history, while completly ignoring the aesthetic and artistic diktats of their own times. Despite their differences in technique and plastical signs, there are several points whick link them together: the love of the material, the sculpture as an existential necessity, the admiration of the Antiques, the Nature as an inexhaustible source of inspiration…
Laura Capazza-Durand, president of the Galerie Capazza
