The Eternal Idol

1889: Musee Rodin, Paris

Rodin and Camille Claudel exerted a mutual influence apparent on each other's work. This pairing is similar in composition to Claudel's Cacountala, shown the year before at the Salon. In Claudel's piece, though, the woman moves in to welcome the embrace of her worshipping lover; Rodin's woman coolly accepts the worship as her due.
