Comment on this story on the Ealing forum

The Friends of Marcq-en-Baroeul, the French twinning organisation of Ealing have organised an illustrated talk in French by art historian Helene Didier on the French artist Auguste Rodin.

Auguste Rodin was rejected three times by the French art establishment, but became the first modern sculptor and also achieved the status of Michelangelo (according to The Times 1917). Hear about his life and see his famous works – the Thinker, The Kiss, The Burghers of Calais, The Gates of Hell and many others.

The talk is suitable for people learning French and takes place at St. Thomas Church Hall, 182 Boston Road, W7 2AD adjacent to Elthorne Park on Monday 20th April 8.00 – 10.00 pm.

There will be an informal gathering after the talk with refreshments provided. The cost is £7.00 (£5.00 for members of Friends of Marcq-en-Baroeul) and free for students.
