This book is one I never managed to take back to the library until I bought it. It is written to be easily read by anybody. Rodin & Claudel love life is analysed in their consequences on their art production and their mutual influence. It is an amazing story about two extraordinary persons. And this book shows and explains well what Camille Claudel achieved on her own, where other books concentrate on Rodin only... It is not only a life story book but also a well pictured documentary one. Excellent.

Quite thought provoking and well written. More about Claudel than Rodin which is what I wanted.

An uninspired work that lacks insight. 22 July 1998
By saenz@an.hp.com - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Schmoll has taken the party line on this piece and looks at every reason to discredit Claudel to the benefit of Rodin. Criticism of Claudel goes so far as to imply that her best works could have been touched up by Rodin. Schmoll even takes time to nitpick at Claudel's looks, pointing out that they were marred by a "weak" chin. From the beginning Schmoll compares the work of a young girl's in her 20's to that of a man in his 40's. It is one of the poorest critical studies of an artist that this reader has ever read.
Sad story of passion and art 20 Oct 2009
By C. Lippincott - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Camille Claudel was a brilliant sculptor and one of Rodin's proteges - and mistresses. She was obsessed by him - and about 25 years younger - and grew jealous when he would not give up his longtime lover. Gradually a pscyhotic tendencies appeared until she grew really mad and destroyed most of her work. Her last 30 years or so were spent in an asylum in France. Most people think she got a raw deal. Nowadays she would never have been incarcerated. Tragic story very well told here, with interesting photographs.

downgrading Claudel to a copy of Rodin 21 May 1999
By k.gillain@assurnet.net - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Camille Claudel was too genuine, too proud an artist to ever allow her work to be a copy of Rodin's. Who knows maybe it should be the other way: Rodin copying Claudel...
