14 February – 10 August 2014

Auguste Rodin’s The Kiss, returns to Cheltenham Art Gallery & Museum 80 years after its initial display. Its display in 2014 celebrates the centenary of Rodin’s visit to Cheltenham. In 1914, Rodin accompanied his friend and biographer, Judith Cladel on a visit to see her sister in Cheltenham and during his stay he came to the Art Gallery & Museum. Then in 1933 Cheltenham Art Gallery & Museum replied to an offer from the owner’s executors to have Rodin’s world famous sculpture on display in spite of the fact it had caused much controversy and had hardly been on display before.
