Inspired by the recently published The Little(r) Museums of Paris, I thought I would share about a recent visit to the small, but mighty Museum Maillol. Perhaps, this will inspire you to add it to your list of off-the-beaten-path museum destinations in Paris.
The museum is housed in a stately 18th century building in St Germain, which was gradually acquired by Dina Vierny, a model and collaborator of sculptor Aristide Maillol (that is his studio above). It houses an expansive collection of Maillol’s work and stages wonderful special exhibitions such as the current showing of the Emil Bührle Collection, featuring works by Monet, Cezanne, Van Gogh, Renoir, and many others.
ps. And if you’re in New York, come hear more about The Little(r) Museums of Paris from the book’s authors at an event at Albertine Books!
