Artist's description:

This is a portrait of Camille Claudel, a French sculptur and graphic artist (1864-1943).She studied arts at the Academie Colarossi, one of the few places opened for female students. The sculptor Alfred Boucher was her mentor and he asked to Auguste Rodin to take over the instruction of that talented young artist. This is how Rodin and Camille met and started their passionated relationship. Camille became his model, confident, lover, although he never left another woman. Her life was not easy and, although most modern authors agree that she was an outstanding genius, she was never rewarded and died in loneliness, poverty and obscurity.
I really like her sculptures and I think that her style was unusual for the contemporary conservative tastes: infact, it is very modern and strong. I saw her beautiful features in an old photo and I decided to paint a portrait. I really hope she could appreciated this tribute to her talent.
As you can see from the photo, this artwork is made of four canvases 50 x 50.
