Read The London Craig blog> Craig’s review of Courtauld Gallery  I’ve been here before. Check out my London blog for a review, with photos

By the early 1900s Rodin was considered France's greatest living artist, primarily producing bronze and marble commissions for buyers around the world. But he also developed a deep fascination with dancers and bodies in acrobatic poses, and in 1911 he created a series of experimental sculptures in terracotta and plaster known as the 'Dance Movements'.

The Courtauld Gallery's new exhibition will present some of these leaping and twisting figures figures alongside a series of drawings in which Rodin explored his interest in movement and dance. They include both the models who posed for him in his studio, as well as the famous troupe of Cambodian dancers who took Paris by storm.

They may be considered his last major project, and show how his final years were actually a period of playful experimentation.
