Patrick Nickell: 2010-11 Faculty Development Grant Report


Excerpt:

In spring of 2011 I received a Faculty Development Grant. My request for funds for this grant application was to visit the Rodin Museum in Paris and Meudon, France. These two locations contain Rodin’s original plaster sculptures, sketches, studies, maquette’s and archives. Rodin's inspiration for my newer body of work is conceptual and technical. This grant allowed me to view first hand Rodin’s extensive and vast knowledge of plaster and the conceptual underpinnings of his bold approach that reveal the inner psychology of the human figure. The grant request was for a total of four viewing days (not including travel days) two days for each museum.
