PARALLELS. Vigeland and his contemporaries
Bourdelle, Maillol, Meunier, Rodin–
In the anniversary exhibition, Gustav Vigeland is presented alongside Antoine-Louis Barye (1795-1875), Constantin Meunier (1831-1905), Auguste Rodin (1840-1917), Aristide Maillol (1861-1944) and Antoine Bourdelle (1861- 1929). With an aim to place Vigeland’s artistic development in a broader art historical context, the exhibition focuses on Vigeland's own interest in the selected artists, the formal and thematic similarities and differences between their works, as well as Vigeland's development towards a more simplified form.
This grand exhibition is a unique opportunity to experience Gustav Vigeland's works together with some of Europe's most famous sculptors.
The exhibition is made possible with generous loans from Musée Rodin, Musée d’Orsay, Musée Bourdelle, Musée du Louvre, Glyptoteket, and institutions and private collectors in Norway.
