Odd couple fit together perfectly

Degas and Rodin had different backgrounds but British show underlines the links

Their backgrounds might have made them strange bedfellows: Edgar Degas (1834-1917), the lawyer turned publicity-shy painter and printmaker, and Auguste Rodin (1840-1917), the sculptor from a working-class background who achieved fame with his large, often controversial works.

But sculptures of the two Parisians sit comfortably side by side, as prime examples of how these two masters of modernism portrayed the human figure.

Browse & Darby’s February 14-March 16 exhibition of the two artists’ works is titled simply Degas & Rodin. The Cork Street gallery includes around 24 pieces in total, fairly evenly split between each maker and between loan and works for sale, with prices ranging from £50,000-500,000. As a specialist in paintings and drawings as well as sculpture, the business also includes several two-dimensional works.
