Hell According to Rodin Exhibitions and activities

Hell According to Rodin invites the spectator to explore the creation of a late 19th century art masterpiece: The Gates of Hell by Auguste Rodin. Considered as the central piece of the French sculptor's career, Rodin worked on it for over twenty years. This monumental work offers a spectacular vision of hell, feverish and tormented, but also sensual and evocative. The numerous groups and figures of the damned that Rodin assembles in The Gates of Hell constitute a true repertoire of forms that the sculptor would use throughout his career with constantly renewed inventiveness and an extraordinary expressive capacity. Many of his most renowned works stem from this project such as The Thinker, The Kiss, Ugolino or The Shadows. In short, the exhibition allows the viewer to admire The Gates of Hell and all the sculptures that were part of it, while also granting the visitor an opportunity to observe the evolution of Rodin's career and to experience the artistic process of one of the most representative artists of the late 19th century.
