Nested in the Montparnasse district, on the Paris Left Bank, Musée Bourdelle was opened in 1949 at the location where the famous French sculptor Émile-Antoine Bourdelle worked and lived.
A studio in its original state
This museum, well-liked by sculpture fans in Paris, contains over five hundred sculptures of plaster, marble and bronze from Bourdelle’s 19th century studio to Christian de Portzamparc’s modern extension in 1992, giving you a unique range of exhibitions.
Don’t miss Bourdelle’s sculpture studio, still in its original state (main picture), with the remaining furniture and materials where he created his art.
You must also take a walk through the Jardin des Sculptures that overlooks the street to enjoy Bourdelle’s famous bronze sculptures – including the four figures of the Monument au general Alvéar: La Liberté (Liberty), La Force (Strength), La Victoire (Victory), and L’Eloquence(Eloquence).
