Last year was the 150th birthday of the French sculptor and graphic artist Camille Claudel, also known for her turbulent relationship with Auguste Rodin. The Art and Industry Museum, La Piscine in Roubaix (10 min by metro fr Lille) celebrated Camille Claudel by having the largest exhibition ever made with more than 150 works.
This was one of the main reasons why I went to Lille a few weeks ago and after almost 3 hours in line we finally entered the exhibition salon. The exhibition ended on February 8th, but I took a few photos that I’m happy to share with you.
I’m very curious on Camille Claudel and I think I’m going to Fnac soon and buy the two movies about Camille Claude, the one with Juliette Binoche (2013) and the earlier one with Isabelle Adjani (1988). Anyone of you who have seen them?
