After joining forces on Wall Street in 1970s-era New York, Iris and B. Gerald Cantor established a foundation “committed to sharing the treasures in their art collection with the broader public.” Now encompassing the world’s largest private collection of works by Auguste Rodin (known best for his iconic bronze The Thinker), the Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Foundation has taken shape in exhibitions staged in such high-profile locales as Rockefeller Center’s Channel Gardens and the First Ladies’ Garden at the White House. Commemorating the 100th anniversary of the modern master’s death, the touring “Rodin: The Human Experience, Selections from the Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Collections” brings together 32 bronzes, including depictions of writers Victor Hugo and Honoré de Balzac and God (which oddly doubles as self-portrait), his Torso of the Walking Man and works derived from a casting of his monumental sculptural group The Gates of Hell.
