A Parisian version of the exhibition presented at Evian last summer, Corps et décors reveals a little-known dimension of Rodin’s work devoted to monumental decoration and the decorative arts. The public will discover many of the exhibition’s hundred and fifty works—vases, objets d’art, drawings, and decorative sculptures—for the very first time, since they have never before been displayed. The exhibition also offers the occasion to rediscover some of Rodin’s well-known works, such as The Gates of Hell, in a decorative context.

Corps et décors is an opportunity to consider the very contemporary question of the status and value of the decorative arts, which was the subject of aesthetic debates at the end of the 19th century.
