Last chance to see Rodin display at the Walker

22 August 2006 by Billy

‘Minerva’, Auguste Rodin

Our temporary display of six Rodin sculptures from the Walker Art Gallery‘s permanent collection ends on Bank Holiday Monday, 28 August 2006.

The six bronze sculptures – ‘Danaid‘, ‘Death of Athens‘, ‘Eve‘, ‘Fleeting Love‘, ‘Minerva‘, ‘Sister and Brother‘ – were all bequeathed to the Walker in the 1920s by Liverpool wine merchant James Smith.

A recording of Curator of Continental Art Xanthe Brooke‘s May artwork of the month talk on ‘Danaid’ is also available online (mp3 file/transcript/links).
