In Nogent sur Seine, a brand-new museum devoted to Camille Claudel should open to the public in the upcoming months.

Soon, the world’s first Camille Claudel museum will be inaugurated in Nogent-sur-Seine, the city where the artist, still an adolescent, met the sculptor Alfred Boucher in 1874 and whose support was determinant for her future.

“This museum will be in the scope of this world known artist whose talent was revealed during her youth in Nogent sur Seine, at the end of 19th century.

The world’s most important collection of the artist will be presented with 42 pieces.

In the museum, visitors will also discover the work of local artists, along with pieces by Paul Dubois or Alfred Boucher, and deposits of Auguste Rodin’s work.

The two artists' confrontation of art pieces around the same themes illustrates the evolution of Camille Claudel inside Rodin’s atelier, from influence, to osmosis, to detachment,”
explains Marine Musset of Aube-Champagne CDT.

Simultaneously, the museum's permanent exhibit of sculptures, with some monumental ones, from the late 19th century to World War I, sheds light on the artistic context in which Camille Claudel trained, evolved and affirmed herself.
