Art Talk: Camille Claudel: A Life – April 21 at 2 PM

Enjoy an exclusive art talk Professor Odile Ayral-Clause exploring the life of iconic sculptor Camille Claudel ahead of the Getty Museum’s exhibition on the artist’s life this summer.

Celebrated for her brilliance during a time when women sculptors were rare, Camille Claudel was among the most daring and visionary artists of the late 19th century. Although she is remembered today for her dramatic life story—her passionate relationship with artist Auguste Rodin and 30-year internment in a psychiatric institution—her art remains little known outside of France.

To reserve your seat, please RSVP with Rowan Waters or call SLOMA at (805) 543-8562 by Thursday, April 18.
