Lucie, Yvonne and Camille: a chain of women (sculptors) in Paris, 1900-1945

Marjan Sterckx UGent (2012) INVERSES (PARIS). p.83-108
abstract
Gabrielle Réval’s booklet La chaîne des dames (Paris, 1924), sketching the portraits of sixteen feminist women in Paris during the interbellum, is the starting point for this article; it will pay special attention to two of them: Lucie Delarue-Mardrus (1874-1945) and Yvonne Serruys-Mille (1873-1953). Both women had much in common and must have known each other. Their social network consisted of both influential (feminist) women (a.o. Marcelle Tinayre, Anna de Noailles, Myriam Harry, Rachilde, Colette) and men (Delarue and Serruys both married famous writers-travellers and could count leading sculptors such as Auguste Rodin and Antoine Bourdelle among their acquaintances). Both women also sculpted, albeit not equally active; this is the discipline this contribution focuses on. The most direct link between both women is that Lucie posed for Yvonne for a nude sculpture, that is identified in this article. The sculptural production of Lucie Delarue, now largely unknown, is looked at, as well as the (possible) links between Lucie Delarue, Yvonne Serruys and Camille Claudel as sculptresses. Jenny Serruys and Natalie Barney must have played a role as go-betweens in this. This contribution thus partly reveals a complex chain of relations that must have been important for the artistic careers of Lucie Delarue-Mardrus and Yvonne Serruys.
