11 July-1 Oct 2006. The Muse dOrsay hosts this comparative exhibition of around 100 very different works by French sculptor and artist Auguste Rodin (1840-1917) and his lesser-known contemporary, Eugne Carrire (1849-1906), to mark the 100th anniversary of Carrires death. Works on loan from the Muse Rodin and from the artists descendants, including terracotta, marble and bronze sculptures, drawings and etchings, are displayed alongside Carrires paintings, sketches and lithographs. The two men are thought to have met in the 1880s when they were working for the Manufacture de Svres. Despite their apparent affinity, Rodins work received universal acclaim after his death, while Carrire, who enjoyed wide recognition in his lifetime, has since been neglected. This exhibition seeks to redress the balance. Admission 7.50, 18-25 year-olds 5.50, under-18s, unemployed & disabled free. Free access for all first Sun of each month. Tues-Sun 09.30-18.00, Thurs 09.30-21.45. Open 14 July.
