Cette sculpture est d'une radicale expressivité. L’artiste réussit à transmettre par les formes son drame personnel, et le rend ainsi universel. Eugène Blot qui a immédiatement saisi l’importance de ce travail, édita cette pièce en deux tailles en intègrant parfois des bases en pierre.
This beautiful, skillfully carved cast made in 1905 by Eugene Blot represents the famous Implorante. The kneeling young woman with arms stretched up to the sky was originally part of the Age Mur group that Camille Claudel created for a commission she received through Auguste Rodin from the director of the School of Fine Arts in 1899. In reality, Claudel created this work after her separation with the sculptor whom she had met in 1883. It has been suggested that the Implorante portrays Camille herself attempting to hold back her illustrious lover. In 1913, the year his sister was interned, Paul Claudel talked of her in the following terms: “My sister Camille, imploring, humiliated on her knees, this superb, this proud woman, and do you know what is being torn from her, at this very moment, beneath our gaze, it is her soul.”
This sculpture is radically expressive. The artist succeeds in conveying her personal drama through form and thus renders it universal. Eugène Blot, who immediately caught the importance of this work, made several editions of this piece in different sizes and sometimes added stone bases.
