CAMILLE CLAUDEL: A Life by Odile Ayral-Clause

Until now, the 19th-century French sculptor Camille Claudel (1864-1943) may have been best known for her much-romanticized relationship with sculptor Auguste Rodin, who has been erroneously portrayed as abandoning the fragile Claudel to a nervous breakdown. But this first fully researched biography of Claudel abolishes the myths attached to her life and asserts the brilliance of her art.<P>Drawing upon ample unpublished material, including family photographs, private letters, and medical records, Odile Ayral-Clause reveals the truth about Claudels affair with Rodin and about her confinement and death in a mental asylum. Using Claudels own words, she describes the crushing reproofs and prejudices the sculptor confronted -- from her family, from society, from the male-dominated art world. For art historians and feminists, such issues are as relevant today as they were in fin-de-siecle Paris.
