4.  Camille Claudel - As far as mainstream art history is concerned, Camille Claudel was just a model for the famous French sculptor Augustin Rodin. Frederic V. Grunfeld writes: "One day in the last year of his life Rodin paused meditatively before a terra cotta bust of Camille in the Museé Rodin. 'She's shut up at Ville-Evrard,' a visitor said. Rodin reacted as though he had been stung. 'You could not have touched on a more painful subject!'" 

6.  Inside the Louise Bourgeois House - The New York Times also recently wrote about the apartment of artist Louise Bourgeois which was left as it was when she died in 2010 and is being turned into a museum.
