Auguste Rodin and Camille Claudel
“If you had to give the story between Auguste Rodin and Camille Claudel a title, it would probably be “Beauty and the Beast”.
When they met he was already a famous sculptor, he was more than 40 years old, lame, short and also short-sighted.
Camille, instead, was a beautiful 18-year-old girl who had arrived in Paris in the 1880s from northern France with a head full of dreams.
She was the pupil, he was the master.
Eventually they became lovers, and the works they created seem to be the representation of their tumultuous love.” The Art Post Blog
