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.

Louise Bourgeois – listen to Otte! (she created this amazing song and she sings it here)

Mmiquelbarcelo, le vent, 1999iquel Barceló – Le vent (the wind, in Africa) – 1999 (prints of the pic below used to be sold for 500 ptas. at Reina Sofía, when the shop had cheap good stuff! I used to buy a few every year to give them out as amazing presents!)
