Rodin and the art of ancient GreeceFrench sculptor Auguste Rodin, one of the greatest and most innovative sculptors of the modern era, took his inspiration from the art of antiquity. He regularly travelled to London and visited the British Museum to sketch. So it's entirely appropriate that this is where Rodin and the art of ancient Greece, an exhibition staged in collaboration with the Musée Rodin,is being held. Visitors can see how Rodin admired the art of antiquity, particularly the works of Phidias who carved the sculptures on the Parthenon.
