Camille Claudel in her workshop (1887).
In 1884, a year after her first exhibiton she became a trainee under Rodin. Her roles would also include his assistant, muse, model and confidante.

During her time with Rodin she helped him complete such pieces as Burghers of Calais in 1895 and Gates of Hell, 1900.
