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 sculptures – strolling 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.
