Cure For Scandal: A New “Thinker?”

Ontario’s McClaren Gallery has “unveiled a large bronze reproduction of The Thinker, Auguste Rodin’s masterpiece of manly, moody meditation, the original plaster version of which was created in 1880, 37 years before Rodin’s death… For many, The Thinker probably will serve, at least for a time, as a painful reminder of a bold, multimillion-dollar art deal gone bad — so bad, in fact, that it almost destroyed the gallery on whose corner it now sits.”
