Auguste Rodin (1840-1917)

Already, in 1885, Camille Claudel was working alongside Rodin ; as a pupil and assistant, she rapidly became the master's associate.

Musée Rodin has various examples in plaster (1884) and in glass paste (1911) of the portrait of Camille Claudel with a hat, incorrectly called "Camille Claudel in a Phrygian cap", produced at start of their stormy relationship which was to last some 15 years.

The hair is held by a scarf in the form of a hat, leaving all the attention to be captured by this bare face, each physical detail is taken in its own right before acquiring its plastic autonomy, like the large section which falls down over the right eye.

Each reproduction requires great expertise   and draws on the skills of the Rodin Museum's teams and craftsmen. It is from the official moulds from the museum's collections that the most accurate resin reproductions are made. They are then hand-patinated to give it the appearance of bronze, plaster or marble.

Finally, they are validated and checked by the Musée Rodin’s curators to ensure that they comply with moral rights.

Reproductions come with an explanatory note about the history of the work.

The seal and the mention “Reproduction - Musée Rodin” guarantee the quality and origin of the sculpture reproduction.
