Camille Claudel (1864-1943) and Auguste Rodin (1840-1917) through the collections

Camille Claudel became an assistant to Auguste Rodin while he was still working on The Gates of Hell, a commissioned work begun in 1880. While collaborating with Rodin, she managed to also pursue her own artistic production. The works focused on during this tour shed light on the years of close collaboration and the artistic connections between these two sculptors who first met in 1882 and had a passionate and complicated love affair. During this period, Camille Claudel sculpted the bust of Auguste Rodin, while the latter conjured the figure of Camille Claudel in several of his works, including France and Farewell. Finally, the tour lingers over a more intimate exploration of Camille Claudel’s The Mature Age; this work evokes the lovers’ separation, while also touching upon a theme dear to this artist: man’s fate.

Camille Claudel (1864-1943)

This thematic tour presents Camille Claudel’s artistic career within its historic and biographic context. Her artistic precociousness and first steps as a young sculptor, her creative dialogue with Rodin, and the intense period of activity preceding her confinement to an asylum in 1913. The works focused on during this tour – from Old Helen to Perseus and the Gorgon – are representative of the artist’s entire career and clearly demonstrate the expressive treatment of her portraits, as well as her search to express human feelings and emotions. Camille Claudel combines the expressive naturalism of the representation of human bodies with a symbolist searching, thereby creating a sculptural oeuvre stimulating a meditation on universal, timeless themes.
