Musée Bourdelle Paris – Amazing sculpture museum

arts&culture
Art & culture

"Musée Bourdelle" in Paris, in the Montparnasse district, was where all the artists hung out last century. Come here to see Bourdelle's beautiful statues.

The Musée Bourdelle is located in the Montparnasse district. This district is known to have been the place of residence or work of many artists in the 20th century, including the poet Louis Aragon, the painter Modigliani and the writer Hemingway. Montparnasse was a trendy district where it was common to meet celebrities on the terraces of cafés. It is therefore here (instead of the current museum) that the French sculptor Antoine Bourdelle lived and worked. You can visit his workshop which has remained almost unchanged. The museum's permanent collection consists of several hundred bronze or plaster sculptures made by Bourdelle.

My favourites are "Herakles Archer" which is located in the main hall or "Tête de cheval monument du Général Alvéar" which is located in the garden. The museum includes a small garden where other sculptures of Bourdelle are exhibited. Every time we walk around, we meet art students who draw the sculptures on their notebooks.
