STEP INSIDE ZADKINE’S ATELIER

Two feet away from the Luxembourg garden, the Zadkine museum, former home and workshop of the Russian artist is a haven of peace. Almost hidden under its leafy garden, this tiny museum has a very bucolic feel, its seems to be out of time, far from the dense, fast paced and noisy city life of Paris. If several works have been undergone to welcome visitors, the place stays true to the original atmosphere and spirit of its former owner.

Great for a family outing, it is suited to all ages. While small children play hide and seek in the garden, the older ones will be able to stroll through the museum to appreciate the work of Ossip Zadkine.
