Hell According to Rodin
Exhibition in Barcelona. Fundación MAPFRE Casa Garriga Nogués Exhibition Hall
From 11/10/2017 to 21/01/2018
Between 11 October 2017 and 21 January 2018, our proposal for Barcelona is an exploration of one of the icons of art from the 'fin de siècle' period, The Gates of Hell by Auguste Rodin. This exhibition brings together a hundred sculptures and around thirty drawings, that have only been shown on rare occasions, plus various mock-ups and models that give an insight into the creative process of the sculptor and the evolution that the Gates were subjected to over the years. Considered the central work of the French sculptor’s career, who spent more than twenty years working on it, this monumental piece offers a spectacular view of hell, frenzied and tempestuous, yet also sensual and evocative.
