Located nearby the Luxembourg Gardens, the Zadkine Museum is nestled within its own verdant gardens, populated with sculptures. This was the house and workshop where Ossip Zadkine (1890-1967), a Russian sculptor and major figure in the School of Paris, lived and worked from 1928 to 1967. After a year of renovation work to ensure its accessibility to all visitors, the museum re-opened its doors for its thirtieth anniversary on the 10th of October 2012 and presented its collections, now redesigned to more closely reflect the spirit of the workshop. The new museum course was designed to stimulate under the light of glass roofs the dialogue between earth, cement, wood and stone, refering to the intimate truth of a space that, before becoming a museum, was first a space for the creation of forms.
