JUDITH SOBOL, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, IRIS & B. GERALD CANTOR FOUNDATION

Sobol will tell the story of the creation of Iris and B. Gerald Cantor’s remarkable collection of work by Auguste Rodin, from its beginnings just after World War II to the 1990s, when it numbered an astounding 750 pieces of sculpture, letters, photographs, drawings, and other ephemera. She will also explore Rodin’s singular achievement in transforming traditional sculpture into modern sculpture and will explain Rodin’s influence on sculptors working today, 100 years after the death of the master.
