10 Rodin sculptures loaned to NC Museum of Art


RALEIGH, NC (AP) -- Ten additional Rodin sculptures are being loaned to the North Carolina Museum of Art to be displayed with the 30 bronzes that the museum already owns.

The 10 sculptures that go on display Friday are being loaned by Iris Cantor from her personal collection. The majority of the works will be on display for a minimum of two years while one has been promised for at least six months. The Cantor Foundation donated the other works by Rodin that are in the museum's collection.

Many of the loaned works relate to the ones already at the museum. For example, a rare marble sculpture of "Eve" and a large bronze of "Eve" that stands more than 5 feet tall will join the museum's smaller "Eve."
