True Nature: Rodin and the Age of Impressionism is the first exhibition in the Bay Area to showcase a select survey of Auguste Rodin’s best-known sculptures together with other rare masterworks by leading Impressionist painters. The exhibition will fill the MFA’s iconic Hazel Hough Wing with dozens of sculptures, paintings, photographs, and works on paper from fin-de-siècle Paris.

True Nature offers a remarkably comprehensive look at Rodin’s hugely influential and revolutionary life as an artist and the rich, rapidly changing world in which he lived. Drawn from the permanent collection of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), the exhibition seeks to reframe the artist and his sculpture, contextualizing his oeuvre within the work of his peers and exploring perceptions about the artist and his significance in the art historical canon.
