Auguste Rodin Two Speaker Lecture
Thursday 27 September 2018, 6.00pm
Auguste Rodin's The Thinker: revolutionising modern art
Auguste Rodin, William Burrell, and Scotland
Lecture two of a two-part series.
It is hard to believe that one of Auguste Rodin's most famous sculptures, The Thinker has its origin in fragmentary form as part of his larger work The Gates of Hell. Curator of Rodin: rethinking the fragment, Barbara Vujanović, will discuss the meanings and history of The Thinker.
Vujanović graduated from Zagreb University in 2007 and co-authored and co-curated the retrospective of Auguste Rodin's work at the Art Pavilion in Zagreb in 2015. She is currently Senior Curator at the Ivan Meštrović Museum Croatia.
During the same event Pippa Stephenson, Curator of European Art, Glasgow Museums, will talk about Sir William Burrell's 1944 donation of his remarkable 9000 objects to the city of Glasgow. Within this collection can be found one of the largest groups of works by Auguste Rodin outside France.
Lecture one in this series is Elisabeth Frink: Her Life and Her Influences
Where: Abbot Hall Dining Room
Admission: Standard £15 / Friends £10. Book both talks for Standard £20 / Friends £15
