Our guide to up­com­ing events, in­clud­ing the new Rodin ex­hi­bi­tion at the Bri­tish Mu­seum

Opens 26 April at the Bri­tish Mu­seum, Lon­don, www.british­mu­seum.org

In 1881, the great French sculp­tor Au­guste Rodin vis­ited the Bri­tish Mu­seum and felt so in­spired by the An­cient Greek fig­ures he saw that they changed the man­ner of his work. Now, some of his mas­ter­pieces, in­clud­ing ‘The Thinker’ and ‘The Kiss’, and more than 80 orig­i­nal plas­ter, bronze and mar­ble pieces on loan from the Musée Rodin in Paris, will stand side-by-side with the an­cient sculp­tures that had such an ef­fect on him.
