Located in the Montparnasse district and built in 1861, Antoine BOURDELLE’s house, gardens and studio have been converted to display the artist’s sculptures, paintings and drawings. During this tour, you will visit not only the Great Hall and the Gallery which are devoted to monumental plaster sculptures but also the gardens, Bourdelle’s apartment and his studio.

The museum features an exceptional collection of 500 plaster, bronze and marble sculptures, some of which are truly monumental in scale. It also contains a personal collection of works by artists including Eugène Carrière, Delacroix, Ingres, Puvis de Chavannes and Rodin.

Let us guide you through the universe of this famous sculptor, Antoine Bourdelle, who was Rodin’s pupil and Giacometti’s master. Then relax in one of the gardens of sculptures which are a heaven of peace.

Instructor: Franck de Beaucé became a professional guide following his studies in history and arts in Dublin. He is also a novelist. He has presented both exhibitions and Paris monuments to a variety of audiences.
