The proposal of MAPFRE Foundation for Barcelona is an exploration of one of the icons of art from the ‚fin de siècle‘ period, “The Gates of Hell” by Auguste Rodin. This exhibition brings together a hundred sculptures and around thirty drawings, that have only been shown on rare occasions, plus various mock-ups and models that give an insight into the creative process of the sculptor and the evolution that the Gates were subjected to over the years. Considered the central work of the French sculptor’s career, who spent more than twenty years working on it, this monumental piece offers a spectacular view of hell, frenzied and tempestuous, yet also sensual and evocative. Ticket: € 3.
When: from 11/10/2017 to 21/01/2018
Sala Fundación MAPFRE
Where: Casa Garriga Nogués. C/ Diputació, 250. Barcelona
