Camille Claudel's L'âge mûr (1895-1903) is a bronze sculpture which can be seen at the Musée d'Orsay in Paris. According to the description given at the Musée d'Orsay website (lire la description en français) (my paraphrasing/translation) this work was done as Camille and Rodin's relationship was coming to an end. It depicts the love triangle Camille felt that she was experiencing as Rodin clung still to his long-time relationship with the mother of his children, Rose Beuret. Camille depicts herself as the lithe, gentle young woman, on her knees with outstretched arms, imploring Rodin to stay, as he, in the middle of the two women, is being pulled away by the decrepit older woman. However, the sculpture can also be seen as an allegory of time leading youth to old age and death.Rodin (according to the film Camille Claudel  ) believed Camille to be showing the more personal symbolism of their relationship, and was horrified to see that she would open their lives to public scrutiny in such a way, especially as he was in the midst of the controversy surrounding his Balzac sculpture.
