Teachers’ Resource: The Body in Motion

Our latest Teachers’ Resource draws inspiration from the exhibition Rodin & Dance: The Essence of Movement (20 October 2016 – 22 January 2017), organised in collaboration with the Museé Rodin in Paris. The pack explores not only Rodin’s fascination with dancers in extreme movement but also how other artists within the Collection express and capture the body in motion. The resource is divided into chapters covering a range of artists in relation to this central theme.
