Rodin and Giacometti
Time Out says
Auguste Rodin (Paris, 1840 – Meudon, 1917) and Alberto Giacometti (Borgonovo, Switzerland, 1901 – Chur, Switzerland, 1966) never met. In fact, when Giacometti arrived in Paris in 1922, Rodin had already been dead for five years. However, through their artistic careers we can bear witness to an interesting dialogue between the two with many aspects in common as well as some differences, something inevitable in two such free artists who were separated by more than a generation.
