Join us for a film about one of the most important sculptors of the 19th century.

Auguste Rodin’s head was often turned by his female models, but he remained unwilling to leave his longtime companion Rose, who also managed his household. In his forties, Rodin began a lengthy and tumultuous affair with artist and former student Camille Claudel. It was an all-consuming passion that threatened to destroy them both.

Rodin spent his days in his studio or outdoors, observing trees and clouds. He would gradually become obsessed with sculpting a monument to Balzac, a commission that absorbed him for nearly seven years.

In French with English subtitles.

5 pm: Enjoy a drink and a treat in the Water Court Foyer before the film. Gourmet Cuisine is offering cash bar service, and a thematic tapas menu.

6:30 pm: Film screening in the Auditorium followed by a Q&A with Marie Ohlinger, Sobey Curatorial Assistant and Provenance Researcher for European and American Art, National Gallery of Canada. Discussion in English, with French simultaneous interpretation available.
