Musée des Beaux-Arts in Mons presents from April 13th a new exhibition dedicated to the French sculptor Auguste Rodin. This exhibition highlights Rodin’s artistic journey, with Belgium as a central point where his art flourished. His fascination with the innovations of the Renaissance is illustrated through comparisons with influential figures such as Michelangelo, Vesalius, Mabuse, and Rubens. Furthermore, Rodin’s work is placed in dialogue with contemporary artist Berlinde De Bruyckere.

During the exhibition, visitors also have the opportunity to admire The Three Holy Women by George Minne from the collection of The Phoebus Foundation, as Minne was strongly influenced by the French master during the early years of his career. Through this work and many others, Rodin: A Modern Renaissance offers a unique opportunity to explore the artistic evolution and influence of Auguste Rodin!
