On the century of the death of Auguste Rodin, The Met celebrates its historic collection of his work. Nearly 560 marbles, bronzes, plasters, and terracottas, representing more than a century of acquisitions,are displayed. Paintings by Rodin's contemporaries, including Claude Monet are presented alongside iconic sculptures such as The Thinker and The Hand of God.
British born David Hockney, for nearly 60 years has pursued a singular artistic career,exploring the nature of perception and representation with intellectual rigor and sheer delight in the act of looking. In honor of Hockney's 80th birthday, this major retrospective at The Met – the show's only North American venue – presents the most iconic works and key moments of his career from 1960 to the present.
