Rodin was in every sentence in our first year of lectures. He was Alan’s hero, he could do no wrong, he made no mistakes. We were told to hold our breath and wonder.
The RA had an exhibition back in 2009 where he took world centre stage. Room after room of nakedness, thick ankles, mould lines and lookalike warts tempted us to gradually accelerate through the exhibition chambers. Yes it was a great exhibition, like no other. I am re-examining Rodin. I wonder how I will view him?
