Published26th November 2018

One of the most significant art exhibitions ever to visit Suffolk is now attracting its first visitors to Christchurch Mansion.

Auguste Rodin’s iconic life-size marble sculpture, The Kiss, is on display until 28th April 2019. The Kiss is considered by art experts to be in the top ten of the world’s greatest sculptures.

The stunning Kiss is on loan from the Tate Collection and is the centre-piece of the Kiss and Tell: Rodin and Suffolk Sculpture exhibition.

Museums manager James Steward said: “We expect many thousands of visitors to embrace the opportunity of seeing one of the greatest ever masterpieces outside London. This is of huge significance to Ipswich and Suffolk and we are grateful to the Tate and other partners for making this happen.”

The Kiss and Tell exhibition also features works of love and devotion by other artists and the Museums team will be engaging with the public through workshops, films and other special events.

Christchurch Mansion is open Tuesdays to Sundays. If you are visiting, don’t forget to park at Crown Car Park, £1 an hour or £2 after 2pm (Mon-Fri).
