Musée Camille Claudel: a worthy dedication to the brilliant sculptor opens its doors.
2017 marks the centenary of Auguste Rodin's death and a new museum dedicated to the work of Camille Claudel (the muse and mistress of Rodin), opened its doors on 26 March, far from the hubbub of Paris.
There are several good reseasons to visit Musée Camille Claudel in Nogent-sur-Seine. Firstly, because it’s about time we celebrated the outstanding talent of this female artist, rather than with a seasonal exhibition. And secondly, because the enormous 2,600m2 space offers a very complete retrospective of sculpture, a field under-represented in most institutions.
