Camille Claudel (1864 - 1943) ~ Notes

An impassioned French sculptress whose dramatic life was inextricably bound with Rodin, her lover and source of inspiration.

It's seems sad to think that her great talent and her work have been overshadowed by the, admityedly, enormous shadow of Rodin, for her work deserves to be heralded in its own right. But the tradegy of her own life makes it almost impossible to view her work in isolation.

When she left Rodin to gain recognition for herself in the art world her world fell apart. Her family committed her to an asylum, where she died 30 years later.

The briefest outline of a life of despair. The films of her life have romanticized it somewhat though Adjani's Camille Claudel is always watchable - the book Camille Claudel: A Life is the book to have if you want to know about the real Camille Claudel.

About Parastone

First things first: there are no better Camille Claudel sculptures/figures than these Parastone figures anywhere. The attention to detail & the 3d effect breathes new life in the work of the masters.

Parastone was originally part of the famous Borzo art dealership which was founded in 1880 and it primarily specialised in restoring religious art. When, alongside the latter activity, an increasing number of sculptures were produced after own designs, it was decided – in 1963 – to found Parastone as an independent company.

For over 50 years now, Parastone has successfully designed decorative sculptures, partly of timeless classic beauty, partly aligned with current trends. The museum images entitled Mouseion constitute an important part of the collection. Alongside exact copies of important works of art, Mouseion also consists of three-dimensional interpretations of paintings and sketches by many artists ranging from Jheronimus Bosch to Salvador Dali.

Parastone is located in ’s-Hertogenbosch, a historic city in the Netherlands and the birthplace of famous Medieval painter Jheronimus Bosch.

Camille Claudel and Parastone: what a magical combination.

As of 2014, I found that amazon now stock the Camille Claudel Parastone sculptures. As it is impossible to compete with their buying power you may well find the sculpture cheaper there. I have put links to their US site below which will take you to their Claudel sculpture pages.

If I can ever compete with their prices then I will stock them again as I do love these sculptures and they deserve to be owned by as many people as possible. I also miss those conversations with fellow Parastone admirers who are adding a sculpture or starting a collection. For now it's enough to present them as beautifully as I possibly can or am able to do.
