Art Thursday: National Gallery of Art's Sculpture Galleries and Rodin Collection
Live Zoom presentation by docents at the National Gallery of Art of the Gallery’s sculpture galleries. The NGA has one of the finest collections of Italian Renaissance sculpture in the United States; a significant group of 50 original wax figures of dancers, nudes, and horses by Edgar Degas (including the Little Dancer); a collection of sculptures by Auguste Rodin; American sculptures from the 19th and 20th century; and many more. In this presentation, NGA docents will offer a virtual tour of the sculpture galleries with particular focus on the works by Rodin who followed an unusual path to becoming one of the most innovative, influential, celebrated, and controversial sculptors of the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
