Figurative sculpture Camille Claudel 1907

Camille Claudel

1907  At 43 her creative powers abandoned her completely. She barricaded herself in her apartment and only went out at night. It became obvious that her mental state was deteriorating; the symptoms of madness which first manifested themselves in the 1890's were becoming ever more acute. In 1913 at the request of her mother she would be dragged from her apartment and placed into an asylum for the mentally insane. She would never sculpt again.
