Musée Bourdelle

The museum houses, besides many valuable archival documents, the sculptural work, graphic and photographic Bourdelle as part of his personal collection, containing works by Rodin, Monticelli, Carriere, Puvis de Chavannes, and Ingres Delacroix but also copies of works and medieval Greek.

Shortly after his arrival in Paris in 1885, Bourdelle took up residence at 16 Impasse du Maine, in the house that still exists and that this piece belongs. From 1918, he prefers, without abandoning a more comfortable apartment, located at 6 Avenue du Maine. And immersed in the heart of bohemian artists of the time, Bourdelle is satisfied with the smallness of the place, despite the arrival of his parents in 1886 - his father had once set up shop with the "boutique" terraced become dining room at his death in 1906 - then his aunt and his grandmother two years later. Beautifully preserved, this place preserves the memory of Bourdelle prégnant who loved to receive visitors.
