Prepare your visit

THE MUSEUM IS CLOSED UNTIL 26 SEPTEMBER INCLUSIVE DUE TO THE SETTING UP OF THE EXHIBITION "THE DREAMER OF THE FOREST" (27 SEPTEMBER 2019 - 23 FEBRUARY 2020).
REOPENED ON 27 SEPTEMBER 2019.

The Musée Zadkine is located near the Luxembourg Gardens, nestled amidst the greenery of a garden peopled with sculptures, a charming location dedicated to the memory and the work of Ossip Zadkine (1890-1967), a sculptor of Russian origin, who lived and worked in the house and studios between 1928 and 1967. This museum, opened in 1982, was created through the bequest made by Valentine Prax, the sculptor's widow and herself a painter, to the City of Paris, which was named as the universal legatee of her possessions.

On the occasion of its thirtieth anniversary, having now become accessible to all after a whole year of works, the museum has reopened its doors with a brand-new identity, a new reception area and a more comprehensive presentation of its collections, designed to represent the style of a studio as closely as possible.

In the house and studios where Zadkine and his wife lived and worked for almost fifty years, a new exhibition route awaits the visitor, winding around the garden, a haven of peace and quiet in this place of memory and charm. In the bare spaces restored to their original dimensions, under light shining through the glass roofs, which brings the works to life as the seasons go by, wood, stones and clay create a dialogue in the silence of the studio. A stone’s throw from Montparnasse, where Modigliani, Cendrars, Henry Miller and many others used to congregate, this place devoted to one of the main representatives of the Paris School is an enclave with a Slav influence, just waiting to be discovered or rediscovered.
