The Musée Bourdelle enabling us to discover the famous French sculptor’s works and studio is said to welcome visitors again from June 16, 2020.

As France is exiting containmentParisian museums are getting ready to resume. The Musée Bourdelle, the museum-studio devoted to the works by famous French sculptor is expected to reopen from June 16, 2020. While waiting to know more about the health conditions in which the cultural place will welcome visitors again, here is more about its story and treasures:

It’s in 1885 that famous French sculptor Antoine Bourdelle settles in on 16 impasse du Maine. Behind him, he leaves a studio-museum nestled in Paris 15th arrondissement, a stone’s throw from the Montparnasse area.

As the artist wanted, you can find permanent collections, in the studios he worked and lived in. it makes of the Musée Bourdelle a place filled with history and authenticity that enables us to dive into the visionary sculptor’s apartment intimacy, as well as his studio that surprisingly remains true to him with “colors of the time” walls, his wood-burner and his large wooden table built by Bourdelle’s father.

The great hall of the museum – built in 1961 by architect Henri Gautruche for Bourdelle’s 100th birthday – delights architecture and sculpture fans with the monumental share of Bourdelle’s plaster work. We can also find works inspired by Antique Greece and its gods and heroes.

Thinkers will be happy to be able to walk along the garden open onto the street where are exhibited the four figures of the “Au general Alvéar – (1913-1923) – La Liberté, La Force, La Victoire, L’Eloquence” monument. The museum also owns an inner garden in the familiar maze of the studios: the perfect setting to wanted around while gazing at Bourdelle’s bronzes!
