Recently opened at the Monterey Museum of Art: Auguste Rodin: Light and Shadow
The Museum's Web site says: "The eminent and groundbreaking 19th century French sculptor Auguste Rodin (1840 – 1917) is described by Rodin Museum as having changed the face of figurative sculpture. His ability to portray dramatic psychological and emotional states in his subjects garnered him worldwide recognition in his lifetime and catalyzed sculptors that followed. His subjects include renowned individuals of his day, as well as figures from mythology, literature and the Bible. Rodin worked in clay and his pieces, many of them monumental, were then cast in bronze. The exhibition will consist of a selection of portrait busts and mid-size figurative sculptures, including the best known The Thinker and The Kiss." The show continues through October.
Ongoing at the Monterey Museum of Art:
"In Sharp Focus examines the Group f/64—seven innovative northern California photographers including Ansel Adams, Edward Weston, Imogen Cunningham, and Alma Lavenson—who rejected the expressive, soft-focused, pictorial style of photography of the early twentieth century and delivered realism, precision, high contrast, and intense detail without interpretive manipulation. Their approach was a modernist departure of its time, which revealed the natural world as never before and transformed American photography. Complementing these legendary artists will be works by the succeeding generation of photographers, among them: Henry Gilpin, Rod Dresser, John Sexton, Martha Casanave, and Wynn Bullock, who have continued to capture the evocative landscape of the Monterey region."
