In 1995, the Musée Maillol opened its doors for the first time, and was created by Dina Vierny - the living model and collaborator of the artist Aristide Maillol. Located elegant surroundings in the rue de Grenelle, it represents a delight for lovers of 20th and 21st century art. The building itself is a work of art, and was once home to the poet Alfred de Musset and the painter Paul-Jacques-Aimé Baudry . But the main collection is dedicated to Maillol, offering a wonderful way to explore his work and his extensive collection of naive and modernist art. With over 4,250m² of floor space, it houses a wealth of artistic creations, including sculptures, paintings, drawings, terracotta ornaments and tapestries.
The Musée Maillol is almost as famous for its architecture as for its artistic collection. As soon as you arrive, you encounter the fountain of the Four Seasons. Created by Edmé Bouchardon between 1739 and 1745 to glorify the origins of Paris, the fountain sets the tone in magnificent style. After that, you can tour the great hall, which once served as a cabaret, welcoming legendary stage performers like Yves Montand, Francis Blanche and Boris Vian. And that's before you explore the artworks on display. It's a feast for the senses.
