To follow up the great success of Picasso Istanbul’da the Sakip Sabancı museum now has another impressive exhibition, this time on the French sculpturer Rodin. Even though I found the Picasso exhibtion very well wrought and historically interesting my main lesson that time was to never study Picassos art again.
Because I’m truly a fan of understanding of what I am seeing. the Rodin exhibition is the opposite of that, consisting mainly of his sculptures , which with both naturalism and playfullness describe human bodies. As a bonus, this time you actually don’t have to stand in line for an hour before being let in.
So go to Emirgan and watch the works of someone who has spent his life considering the human body. It’s worth both the minibus (or whatever your economy allows) ride and the ticket.
