Precious letter of claudel camille giving indications about his childhood, his life as a designer and his infinite sacrifices. An autobiography in a few lines. \"Dear madam, I was a little late in answering you because my mother did not arrive as soon as I thought, and besides did not recall much danecdotes that might add any interest to your account. The anecdotes are the person of the artist while considerations about his work are much more interesting to me. My mother makes some very deep reflections.A life like mine, she says, does not prove at all that a woman can have her independence by working, on the contrary the sacrifice is more complete than in any other existence, one is not the slave of a husband, but one is not only of his work but of all the scoundrels who rob you, exploit you, drag you to court, etc. And without ever having any defenders. Sacrifices of money, pleasure, coquettishness, renunciation of all that usually makes the charm of female existences all for one purpose. My mother remembers in particular my great group that I made at the age of 19, how many times I started again, turned around to find a really personal side; how much I did useless studies that I broke not responding to my idea. It seems that as a child my greatest pleasure was to build heavy caves in front of which I remained in contemplation for the whole days happy to have made such masterpieces (I put notes to you at random as I find them). I didn't start until later the famous men's heads that struck me the most. You see that I could not reap much more, but I think it would be much more artistic to make general remarks about my art, the love of the search. (sic), consciousness, the desire to penetrate the bottom of things, only to put anecdotes (even those I have already given you) that are rather picturesque, theatrical, something that is so contrary to my character. It is better to speak to me only of the artist than of the woman even by an original side? Receive, dear lady, all my friendships, and wait to see you to chat with you, a good handshake. As his great-niece, Queen-Marie Paris, states, this letter was most likely addressed to judith cladel (1873.1958) who met camille shortly before her internment in ville-evrard. Judith cladel wrote a book on rodin and she visited Camille who \"with simplicity and cordiality\" in her bourbon quay workshop. The two women had already met in the rodin's insery, in 1897, when she wrote an article about camille in the newspaper the slingshot.
It is certainly at this time that Camille addresses him this letter. Camille recalls the performance of her large group, made at the age of 19, in 1883. To this day, this work has never been found.
Similarly, no trace has been found of the sculptures of heavy caves evoked in this letter. Camille claudel - letters and correspondents r. Cressent - editions culture economica, page 750 and beyond.
