An exceptional Night of Museums at the Musée Bourdelle
Publish on Tuesday, 10 April 2018 in Events
The Night of Museums is back this year on Saturday, May 19th. This highly anticipated event gives pride of place to the arts and culture and provides the opportunity for a nocturnal exploration of the most beautiful Parisian cultural sites. This year, the focus is on the Musée Bourdelle, in the 15th arrondissement, not far from the Hotel de la Paix.
Musée Bourdelle, an intimate museum close to Montparnasse
Housed in an exquisite building, the Musée Bourdelle offers an original and intimate space that opens onto a tranquil garden. This is where you can find the preserved sculpture studio of the artist Antoine Bourdelle (1861 to 1929), which is filled with his work. The artist's presence seems to haunt the studio, giving his sculptures life, and you can easily imagine him lost in contemplation by the large wooden table, preparing for a burst of astonishing creativity.
A sublime sculpture garden conducive to dreams
Antoine Bourdelle's most famous bronze sculptures can also be found throughout the museum’s gardens, so you can wander amidst the graceful, virile and dynamic representations of the human figure so dear to the sculptor. Both the garden overlooking the street and the inner garden are an invitation to daydream and meditate. Their magic is something you will always remember.
