Camille Claudel's rare bronze Chienne rongeant son os has just arrived at Turner Carroll. Chienne rongeant son os is a study in suffering. Sculpted in 1893, Claudel’s groundbreaking realistic depiction of the hungry dog, rejected contemporary tropes of animals posed in noble or triumphant settings. In this edition, only eight casts were made and this is the first time one has ever been available for purchase on the public market. The sculpture is featured in her catalogue raisonné, and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity signed by Reine-Marie Paris, author of the catalogue raisonné.
Caledonia Curry (aka Swoon) will take over a portion of the gallery in May for Women in the House, celebrating the 50th anniversary of Womanhouse. Fresh from a solo exhibition in the Atrium Gallery at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Swoon, is a Brooklyn-based artist and is widely known as the first woman to gain large-scale recognition in the male-dominated world of street art. Callie took to the streets of New York while attending the Pratt Institute of Art in 1999, pasting her paper portraits to the sides of buildings with the goal of making art and the public space of the city more accessible.
Camille Claudel's masterwork L'implorante is on view now at Turner Carroll. L'Implorante is the young Camille, laid bare with soul-wrenching longing, imploring her lover Auguste Rodin to remain with her. In 1905, Claudel worked with her friend and esteemed art dealer Eugene Blot in Paris to cast in bronze both a large-scale edition (this one) and a small-scale edition of L'Implorante. The sculpture is featured in her catalogue raisonné, and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity signed by the author of the catalogue raisonné.
