  1. Claude Lantier and his muse Christine Hallegrain
  2. Claude's depression and frustration

Each artist's life is surrounded by passion. It can be a pleasant association, one filled with success and inspiration, or it can be deadly and obsessive. In the case of Emile Zola's "The Masterpiece", Claude Lantier, a young painter, is consumed with creating his vision, his life's work. However, his inspiration drives him to madness, and he sinks into a depression that takes over his life. In the end, his passion for his art causes Lantier to lose all that is important to him, and to give up his life in the process.
