Gunn Theater

The Thinker and The Kiss are such recognizable bronze sculptures that many of us feel that they define the artist. This talk explores not only Rodin’s illustrious artistic history and talented development, but also his intense feelings and compelling experiences. It places him within the late 19th and early 20th century European and American context.
