Complementing the NCMA’s own collection of Rodin bronzes, the image of his lover, Camille Claudel, carved in white marble in Farewell adds another layer to the story of the master and his muse.
Join a Museum docent to look at 1 or 2 works on loan from the Chrysler Museum. Explore the conversations and connections between these visitors and the NCMA’s own works in the European galleries.
