Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

A beautiful woman and highly talented sculptress in expressive and impressionist styles of figurative works, Camille Claudel had both successes and tragedies in her life.  During her lifetime, she was better known as the mistress of Auguste Rodin than for her artistic skills, but posthumously she is increasingly recognized for her accomplishments.  A film staring Isabelle Adjani helped to make Claudel "a popular heroine of our times."

Rodin was twenty-four years older than Cami (showing 500 of 1944 characters).
