Book News
Ayral-Clause (French, California Polytechnic State U.) draws on letters of friends and family as well as recently released medical documents to dispel some of the myths that have sprung up around the life of French sculptor Camille Claudel. She presents Claudel as a major figure in the late 19th-century Paris art world in which she struggled to overcome the obstacles facing women artists of the time. The final chapters detail her isolation from friends, family, and work during the last third of her life and answer lingering questions about the circumstances of her confinement. Contains 69 b&w reproduction of her works, as well as family photographs. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
