Camille Claudel was recognized for both her artistic talent and her physical beauty; nevertheless, she spent most of her adult life as a recluse. Her complex personal drama has brought her prominence through scholarly and popular accounts. It was first and foremost her unrivaled ability to convey narrative through marble and bronze that attracted patrons and critical accolades, however, much attention has been focused on Claudel’s relationship with her teacher, mentor, and lover, Auguste Rodin.
