The current “Rodin: In His Own Words” exhibit at the Ursinus College’s Berman Museum is a fraud.
Thirty of the thirty-five so-called “Rodin sculptures,” in this exhibit, are fake, posthumously reproduced between 1925 and 1995.
Auguste Rodin died in 1917.
By definition, rule of laws and laws of nature, not to mention common sense, dead men don’t create sculpture.
So, despite the Morning Call newspaper art critic Mr. Gehman receiving, by email, a copy of my January 9, 2006 “30 FAKE RODINS” Press Release (on January 12, 2006) documenting this fraud, the Morning Call newspaper publishes the March 2, 2006 “Ursinus exhibit unleashes the passion struggle of Rodin” article by Mr. Gehman that doesn’t even give a hint of controversy.
Though, I do not know Mr. Gehman's reasons for failing to even briefly broach these valid and devastating issues of authenticity with this so-called “Rodin: In His Own Words" exhibit, I can document his article, throughout, is -overtly- misleading.
Here is one of numerous examples Mr. Gehman writes:“Virtually every work fulfills Rodin’s goal -’Mask of the Man with the Broken Nose’(modeled in 1863-1864).”
The “Mask of the Man with the Broken Nose” was actually reproduced in 1979, some sixty-two years after Auguste Rodin’s death in 1917.
In closing, to document these serious contentious issues of authenticity with this so-called “Rodin: In His Own Words” exhibit at Ursinus College's Berman Museum, I will email to anyone, for their review and information, a PDF copy of my complete January 9, 2006 “30 FAKE RODINS” Press Release.
I look forward to your email inquires.

Nice set-up, Rocky.
I’ve got Kate with me.
She can’t talk at the moment.
Just got back from the dentist
But should be OK once the Novocain wears off
Try to keep “angel” clear of the Sangria, OK?
I’ll do the same.
