This year, as part of its contemporary art programme, the Musée Rodin invites the artist Erik Samakh to occupy and exhibit his works in the museum garden. Between nature and sculpture, materiality and impalpability, Erik Samakh designs a one-of-a-kind outdoor exhibition in the Musée Rodin garden.
2012 - 2013
Cast in 1904, this great bronze, The Thinker, has been exhibited since 1923 in the museum garden. It is exposed to bad weather, the climate, and pollution, all of which attack the layer of protection and the patina of the work. Discover the whole operation of restoration, which takes place at intervals of about ten years.
