Bourdelle Museum is a little gem to visit in Paris. Antoine Bourdelle (1861–1929) was a sculptor, and he used these premises for living and working from 1885 until his death.

What makes this museum to stand out from others? The way of showcasing sculpturesstrolling between the artist’s creative studio, his apartment and a beautiful garden full of sculptures. It is a haven of peace between indoor workshop rooms and garden spaces.

Hard to believe, but Montparnasse area is a very bohemian one, gathering different artists who have their studios there.  Village-like streets, where you can enjoy your gardens without seeing passers-by.

Bourdelle’s workshop is something you need to see and feel by yourself. Raw wood interior mixed with old washed paint makes a perfect background for the beautiful sculptures bathing in soft light, coming from the large windows. This Bourdelle studio room offers very nice color combinations even if it is very achromatic. A palette of diverse grays gives a different perspective while looking at the space. Even the ceiling is painted in moody gray. By the way, painted ceilings in a different than ordinary white are going to be a huge trend in 2019 and 2020.

All these sculptures are in the garden. Unfortunately, February weather wasn’t very welcoming for a nice relaxed stroll.

Apart from beautiful Bourdelle studio and outdoor showcased sculptures, there are other rooms that offer a variety of Bourdelle works. I loved this purple cozy room with plenty of sculptures and artwork.
