Camille Claudel

1929 The last photograph we have of her at age 65. The doctors suggested she be allowed to return to society but her mother refused and demanded Camille have No contact with the outside world. She died on October19, 1943, at the age of 79.

During the last years of her life she wrote:
"I won't recount my life, I don't want to sadden you. I'm in an abyss...
My dream of life has become a nightmare...
