La Valse, by Camille Claudel (1864-1943) Bronze, Paris, Musée Rodin
Camille Claudel, tragic life, incredible artist, muse of Rodin. Ended up in insane asylum, where she stayed until her death. Tragic women's story. At least her art now has a place next to Rodin at the Rodin museum in Paris.
La Petite Châtelaine by Camille Claudel (1895)
This incredible statue Camille Claudel made is one of my favourit artworks... People who are playing in the see and who are not aware from the danger behind them... There was so much meaning to her work!
