Rodin! The Complete Stanford Collection
The Cantor Arts Center presents its entire Rodin collection, 200 works in all, for public viewing. The Cantor's collection of Rodin bronzes is among the largest in the world. The majority of the collection occupies three ground-floor galleries. Approximately 170 works by Rodin are on view inside the Cantor, mostly cast bronze, but also works in wax, plaster, and terra cotta.
Twenty bronzes, including The Gates of Hell on which Rodin worked for two decades, are outside in the Sculpture Garden. The Burghers of Calais are nearby on campus. The Rodin Sculpture Garden is open all hours, with lighting for nighttime viewing. Admission is free. Learn more
