How can rough stone embrace the shapes of the body with so much grace and naturalness? Many visitors to the Maillol Museum, a superb private mansion in the 7th arrondissement of Paris, are led to ask themselves this question. In more than 4,000 square metres, this unjustly unrecognized building presents the most beautiful works of sculptor Aristide Maillol, gathered here in the 1960s thanks to the passion and dedication of his former muse Dina Vierny.
Above and beyond the grand master's most beautiful achievements, the visitor who is fond of sculpture will be pleasantly surprised to find a vast collection of drawings and paintings bearing the signature of other prestigious names in 20th century art history, including Pierre Bonnard, Raoul Dufy and even Henri Matisse.
