The Waltz, 1899-1905, by Camille Claudel1800’s

Camille Claudel (Locked up for 30 years as insane, for being a woman artist threatening patriarchal order. Her courage can be sensed in this – she refused to create all that time. What suffering she must have endured!) Look at this waltz. Have you ever seen something like this? It’s really small. Wish she could’ve had the chance to make it really big! This figurine was here in Madrid a few years ago.

1900’s
