Past exhibitions: Rodin Rilke Beuys (Fall 2015): Rainer Maria RIKE

There was no haughtiness in him. He pledged himself to a humble and difficult beauty that he could oversee, summon and direct. The other beauty, the great beauty, had to come when everything was prepared, as animals come to a drinking-place in the forest in the late night when nothing foreign is there.Rainer Maria Rilke, Auguste Rodin, translated by Jessie Lamont and Hans Trausil  (New York, Sunwise Turn Inc., 1919)
