Quotes about Camille Claudel[edit]

  • The different scales, the different modes of plasticity, and gender-representation, of the three figures which make up this important group [her sculpture 'The Mature Age', commissioned in 1895, exhibited in plaster in 1899 and cast in bronze in 1902] enable a more universal thematic and metaphoric stylistics related to the ages of existence, childhood, maturity, and the perspective of the transcendent.
