Two geniuses. Two pioneers, absolute references in their field. Two artists now given pride of place in a compelling double exhibition in Paris. The Musée Rodin and the Musée national Picasso team up to present a new look on these artists’ creations with the Picasso-Rodin exhibition running at the same time in both museums.
This compelling exhibition – running from May 19, 2021 to January 2, 2022 – enables to shine a light on the similarities between the two artists and shows a strange, poetic, and unexpected dialogue.
The Musée Rodin displays a tour focusing on representation and the new means of expression. Works displayed translate passions, violence, and love inhabiting men. We are glad and impressed to discover a gigantic reproduction of “Guernica” facing Rodin’s monumental sculpture, “The Gates of Hell”.
The last room of the tour in the Rodin museum is dedicated to the exploration of bodies and sensuality. Between sculptures and paintings, we discover fascination for the female body, a precise study of the bodies and movements, a re-reading of some antique myths and surprising assembly, but perfectly mastered. Although they do not seem to have ever met, Picasso’s and Rodin’s masterpieces are put together and seem to answer to one another, having a secret dialogue.
In all, over 500 artworks are scattered throughout both museums, for a rich and never-before-seen experience, meeting two exceptional artists.
Go for this great journey and make the most of this remarkable exhibition highlighted within the beautiful walls of the Musée Picasso and the Musée Rodin.
