Auguste Rodin is primarily known for his dramatic sculptures depicting human figures. However, Rodin was also a prolific and multi-faceted draughtsman who explored the extensive potential inherent in paper as artistic medium. Rodin himself emphasised the importance of his work on paper: “It’s very simple. My drawings are the key to my work.”
The exhibition showcase Rodin’s unique work as a draughtsman, relating his drawings to his work as a sculptor.

Japanese art had a transformative impact on Nordic art during the period 1875–1918. From exotic geishas and startling depictions of nature to stylised and rarefied aesthetics.
The inspiration from Japan was particularly evident in artists such as Edvard Munch, Carl Larsson, Helene Schjerfbeck, Vilhelm Hammershøi, Anna Ancher and L.A. Ring.
