About the life of Camille Claudel, an artist of exceptional and unusual talent who influenced the great Auguste Rodin.
Choreographer Notes Camille Claudel was declared one of the premiere artists of her time and was considered an equal to Auguste Rodin in technical ability and artistic merit. Before her career was cut short due to confinement in a mental institution in 1913, she was able to push through the bureaucracy and accomplish a very prolific period. I can only imagine the deeper impact she could have had on the world as an extraordinary artist and woman, and find it a travesty the world will not have the amazing works she could have continued to create had her fate been different.
