Rodin and the Art of Ancient Greece
Our new exhibition, Rodin and the Art of Ancient Greece, has opened at the British Museum to five-star reviews and critical acclaim in the national press.
It has been praised both for its immaculate curating by Celeste Farge and Ian Jenkins, and for its powerful design.
Reviews have emphasised the exquisite placement of objects, the way that the design opens up the space to daylight and the powerful and touching story of Rodin’s admiration for these sculpture that he first saw here, in the British Museum.
Rodin and the art of Ancient Greece is the third major blockbuster we have created for the British Museum – the other two being the Terracotta Warriors and Michelangelo: Closer to the Master.
In each case we have used exhibition making as a way of giving visitors a once in a lifetime experience. This is the first time that most visitors will ever have come close to the incomparable Parthenon marbles.
