At Penn's Arthur Ross Gallery

You decide.

The installation of Auguste Rodin sculpture is from the collection of the Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Foundation. The Cantors collected Rodin works for decades. She still does. According to foundation, all their pieces are the real deal. That's open to debate. Most experts argue that the only 'real' Rodins are those cast during the artist's lifetime at the foundry of his choosing under his supervision/permission. The Cantor sculptures don't meet this test. A poster in the Penn exhibit tries to explains this away in its own way. Still the works are interesting in themselves. For the real deal, visit the Rodin Museum on the Parkway. Works there all pass muster. The Arthur Ross show runs through 22 December. Free.
