Auguste Rodin (1840-1917) was a collector and lover of the antique, and his sculpture was influenced by his admiration for classical art. Alongside works from the British Museum and the Holburne’s own collection, this display will show The Thinker alongside historic works to reveal the importance of the fragment in creating Rodin’s modern sculptures.
