To support the catalogue and the 2011–2012 exhibition Rodin in America: Influence and Adaptation 1876–1930, which explores the substantive manner in which American artists responded to the innovative aesthetic principles, formal solutions, and novel themes in the work of French sculptor Auguste Rodin. Some one hundred objects in an array of media by such American artists as Gutzon Borglum, Malvina Hoffman, Georgia O’Keeffe, Edward Steichen, John Storrs, and Lorado Taft will be shown alongside sculptures and watercolors by Rodin.
