Auguste Rodin - Camille Claudel
1996 Exhibition Catalogue
Bilingual edition (Greek, French)
Basil & Elise Goulandris Foundation
Catalogue of the exhibition Auguste Rodin - Camille Claudel held at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Andros of the Basil & Elise Goulandris Foundation from 7 July to 22 September 1996.
While placing emphasis on Rodin's work, the exhibition was aimed at presenting aspects from all phases of the artists' œuvre, including works created during their long relationship, which reveal the mutual influence that each one's sculpture exerted on the other's.
18 watercolours and 55 sculptures by Auguste Rodin, alongside 10 sculptures by Camille Claudel, from museums, foundations and private collections abroad - mainly from France and Switzerland - are included in this fully illustrated, bilingual catalogue (Greek, French), accompanied by bibliography and illustrated chronology for both artists, entries of the works, anthology, the testament of Rodin (advise to new artists), as well as a text by him dedicated to the Venus of Milos.
Essays contributed by:
- Marina Lambraki-Plaka, Director of the National Gallery of Greece
- Paul Claudel, Camille Claudel’s brother
- Kyriakos Koutsomallis, Director of the Museum of Contemporary Art of the Basil and Elise Goulandris Foundation
