XIX - XXth century sculptures

CLAUDEL Camille ( ( 1864-1943)

She worked with Dubois then Boucher and met Rodin in 1884, with whom she worked and lived for 10 years. She was not only his pupil but also his model and muse and she so dedicated herself to him that she only started developing her own style after they broke up, a style that appeared more mysterious and tormented that Rodin's. Indeed, her works are strongly impressionist and marked by grief, a grief that drew her to madness by the end of her life.
