The current museum has been renovated extensively to display more sculptures of Ossip Zadkine. I have seen sculptures from different periods, in wood, stone and -especially in the garden- in bronze. Familiarizing yourself with the work of Zadkine helps to appreciate the style and progression...More
After listening to my friend who raved about this little museum, I decided to pay a visit and I am so happy I did so. Mostly the museum hosts Zadkine's sculptures (no drawings) There is the possibility of a self guided audio tour that was...More
We found this on a list of little visited places in Paris and went to see it. I’m glad we found it because I thought the works on display were outstanding. I read someplace that you could see it in 15minutes, but that’s not true....More
This little-known sculptor deserves more attention. He took his Vitebsk roots of Supremecism and channeled Picasso and Braque to portray in stone and wood the essence of cubism. Should not be missed by anyone interested in 20thC representative arts.
It isn't easy to find. On our first attempt, we walked right by it. (Then turned on the GPS on my phone, turned around and voila, there it was.) But alas, it was closed on a Monday. We felt like, ok, we've only got 3...More
Simply amazing. This museum is housed in Zadkine's home, garden and shop. It is small and not overwhelming like the more popular museums. It is interesting to see his sculptures in areas where he probably wanted them displayed.
The Zadkine, just south of the Luxembourg Gardens, is a great find. It's housed in the studios and house where he lived for forty years and this gives a real sense of his work. The sculptures are superb and the setting wonderful. Most of the...More
If you are overwhelmed by the Louvre, this is a perfect museum. Formerly the home, gardens and studio of sculptor Zadkine, this place gives you insight into how he and his wife lived in Paris. Tucked behind a five story building, is this priceless, private...More
In Saint-Germain-des-Prés, life is effortlessly chic and all things are beautiful. The main boulevard is dotted with famed terraced cafés, haut-couture shops, ivy-covered railings and fine-dining restaurants. Antique dealers and art galleries surround the fine art school and small museums hide in unassuming squares. The neighborhood’s namesake church is the oldest in Paris and is the backdrop for talented
musicians every weekend. The Luxembourg Gardens house the national senate, splendid lawns and flourishing flower beds. Famous faces and bourgeois Parisians frequent Saint Germain accompanied by the students of Rue Saint Guillaume and Rue des Saints-Pères. This is a neighborhood where afternoon people-watching from a café or playing cards in a brasserie are a key part of the daily fabric.
