Inspired by Michelangelo, Rodin’s work shows a preference for modelling and the expression of character and movement. Though a pupil and a mistress of Rodin’s, Camille Claudel’s artistic genius is thought to have disturbed or even threatened Rodin. In this lecture, we examine the work of both artists and their depictions of human emotions.
