Camille Claudel

In April, I visited the Camille Claudel exhibit at the Getty Center. The exhibit contains a stunning collection of her sculptures and a rare glimpse into Claudel’s artistic genius and tumultuous life. From her early works influenced by Rodin to her later masterpieces that reflect her unique artistic vision, the exhibit celebrates Claudel’s significant contribution to the world of sculpture and offers a profound exploration of her legacy.

I’ve included several pictures from my visit, and I encourage everyone to take the opportunity to view this collection in person. The exhibit will continue until July 21, 2024.

From the Getty Center website,

“Celebrated for her brilliance during a time when women sculptors were rare, Camille Claudel (1864–1943) was among the most daring and visionary artists of the late 19th century. Although she is remembered today for her dramatic life story—her passionate relationship with artist Auguste Rodin and 30-year internment in a psychiatric institution—her art remains little known outside of France. Including about 60 sculptures, this major exhibition seeks to reevaluate Claudel’s work and affirm her legacy within a more complex genealogy of Modernism.”
