Flute Player Statue Replica by Camille Claudel Parastone 9HPN# CC04
La Joueuse de Flute (1903 - 1905)
In 1905, 12 years after Camille Claudel's famous sculpture La Valse was exhibited at the Paris Salon, La Joueuse de Flute was also admitted to this important annual exhibition. The preceding year, Claudel wrote to bronze caster Blot that she had modelled a petite faunesse and that she had become enormously attached to her sirene. Looking back, it proved to be her final large sculpture before psychological problems made working virtually impossible.
The influential critic Monice wrote the following about the flautist: "But this siren, who sits, knees up, seemingly bringing her entire body to her lips, plays - with her god-like flute - the keening sound of superhuman passion. The cooing of the doves, the wind over the trees, the plains, the sea, the muse. You are not the singer, you are the singing itself that is shaped".
