Shizuoka Prefectural Museum of Art: Rodin Wing | Japan Highlights Travel, for sightseeing around Tokaido

Shizuoka Station 

[Shizuoka Prefectural Museum of Art: Rodin Wing]

32 Rodin sculptures are on permanent display, including "The Thinker"

This exhibition facility in the Shizuoka Prefectural Museum of Art hosts the works of Auguste Rodin, one of the major French sculptors in the 19th century. The annex exhibits 32 of Rodin's sculptures including "The Thinker", "The Gates of Hell", and "The Burghers of Calais". To have such a number of works on permanent display is rare and visitors come from all over Japan to see the exhibition. The exhibition floor of the wing was designed to have multiple levels with windows to let natural light in. You can appreciate Rodin's art pieces from every angle-from above or from below-and how their appearances change in the different light. This is one of the unique wonders that can only be experienced here.
