Shaw and Rodin: A Creative Dialogue

George Bernard Shaw's photo of Auguste Rodin's bust of the playwright

A new exhibition explores Shaw's relationship with Auguste Rodin, marking the centenary of the sculptor's death. Highlights include Shaw's own photographs of his Rodin busts, taken in the garden at Shaw's Corner.

Marking the centenary of sculptor Auguste Rodin’s death, enjoy a new display of his busts of George Bernard Shaw together with photographs by the playwright.

For the first time the large bronze bust of Shaw will be shown alongside the rarely seen plaster original, created in Rodin’s studio in 1906.

Shaw celebrated Rodin as an artist establishing a new sculptural freedom, and used photography to record and interpret his sculpture. The display features striking images documenting Shaw’s creative dialogue with Rodin.

The exhibition is now on, until 29 October.
