ArtsNational Lecture: “Rodin and the 19th Century”
Rodin and the 19th Century – David Worthington (UK)
Rodin is one of art history’s heroic figures of the 19th century and was internationally celebrated during his lifetime but after his death his reputation slipped and there were questions about his use of the female image. However, he is now seen as having in one career, taken sculpture on a revolutionary path equivalent to what the Realists, Impressionists and Post Impressionists did with many careers.
David Worthington is a sculptor, art curator, writer and Fellow of the Royal Society of Sculptors. He is an Oxford graduate and has carried out public commissions in the UK, America and Japan.
