Camille Claudel was born on December 8, 1864 in Fère-en-Tardenois (Aisne – France). She was the oldest of three children.
His mother -Madame Claudel- was busy from morning to evening with household chores. « She never had a moment to think of herself, nor of others – describes Paul, Camille’s brother – .. She never embraced us » The values ​​of the home were work, economy, honesty, sense of duty.

She became independent, and more active, she exhibited in a large number of art fairs including the famous « Paris Universal Exhibition of 1900 ».
