Lecture on Auguste Rodin at Darien Library

Join Larissa Bailiff at the Darien Library next Tuesday, Sept. 19 at 7 p.m. for a talk exploring the life and work of French sculptor Auguste Rodin. 

This year marks the centenary of the death of the artist responsible for creating such iconic works as The Gates of Hell, The Burghers of Calais, The Thinker, and The Kiss. — an announcement from Darien Library. The occasion is being commemorated with exhibitions around the world, including one opening in mid-September at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art.  

Throughout his career, Rodin was a lightning rod for controversy and gossip — both personal and professional.
