Curator Jane Alison & Katy Hessel on Modern Couples
Curator Jane Alison and Katy Hessel (from The Great Women Artists) discuss some of creative and romantic couples featured in our exhibition 'Modern Couples: Art, Intimacy and the Avant-garde'.
Camille Claudel and Auguste Rodin worked side by side in the studio and their sculptures clearly show mutual influence and synchronicity, announcing a new kind of creative exchange within an artistic relationship.
In 1915, Sophie Taeuber met Jean Arp at his exhibition. From then on, the two immediately began collaborating and creating together, a creative relationship that would last for almost three decades.
