The Art of Facing Grief: Rodin and Claudel

On the anniversary of Rodin's birth, we honor the ways art can express and hold our grief. This Virtual Salon of Art and Ideas explores the sculptural masterpiece The Burghers of Calais, a collaboration Rodin created with his muse and lover Camille Claudel as a monument to courage and generosity in the face of fear and tragedy.

Hired  by the town of Calais to commemorate the story of six Medieval citizens who volunteered to sacrifice themselves to save their community, Rodin and Claudel created a scultpure that redfined the concept of heroism while foreshadowing the  psychological insight of Elizabeth Kubler-Ross on the stages of grief: anger, denial, fear, bargaining and acceptance.
