Organised by the London Events Volunteer Fundraising Committee

Auguste Rodin and Camille Claudel by Patrick Bade

Talk | Royal Overseas League

Tuesday 23 June 2015 - 15:00 until 16:00

This Spring’s series ‘Artistic Relations’ looks at the creative connections and artistic influences within a close relationship or group.

It was Camille Claudel’s tragedy that she lived in the shadow of two powerful men – her lover Auguste Rodin and her brother, author Paul Claudel. Much of her work would be subsumed into Rodin’s and he continued to support her creative aspirations after their relationship ended. She was committed to a psychiatric institution by her family where she stayed for over thirty years.

Patrick Bade will tell the story of Claudel’s passionate and sometimes tortured relationship with Rodin and attempt to sort out what they contributed to each other’s art.

This event has been organised by the London Events Volunteer Fundraising Committee to help raise money for the Art Fund.
