Camille Claudel sculpture : L'Age Mur (the Age of Maturity)

Camille Claudel (1864-1943) decided very soon to become a sculptor, and in 1881 she took up residence in Paris, confident in her destiny. She met Auguste Rodin in 1883 and became his mistress. The two artists had a strong passionate mutual influence ; her Jeune Fille à la Gerbe of 1887 was a precursor of Rodin’s Galatea, and the Three Female Fauns are the inspiration for the female’ figures in Camille Claudel’s La Vague. Here is a picture of one of its most famous work : The Age of Maturity (1895) - L'Age Mur in French. First floor - sculptures terrasse on the left side.
