URL : cdlm/5755 ; DOI : After training at the Academy of Fine Arts in Barcelona, Joaquim Claret realized that he needed to go to Paris to make a name for himself. He probably succeeded in doing so in 1905, when he exhibited at the Salon des Artistes Français. Joining Aristide Maillol's studio, he became one of its practitioners for at least two years, from 1907 to 1908. During the First World War, Joaquim Claret remained stranded in Catalonia where he had gone on his honeymoon. His career was at a standstill until Maillol accelerated his return to France in 1921. The Bernheim Jeune gallery then devoted an exhibition to him, from December 5 to 13, 1921, where a copy of an Elongated Nymph was presented (under number 56 in the catalogue). Following in the footsteps of his master Maillol, Claret finds deep sources of inspiration in mythological subjects,
