On a hushed Parisian side street, an artist's hidden house museum.
In the heart of Montparnasse, down a narrow path that leads between two buildings, is Musée Zadkine—the home and atelier of the late Russian-born sculptor Ossip Zadkine. The artist lived and worked here between 1928 and 1967 with his wife, the Algerian-born painter Valentine Prax. Today, thanks to an endowment from Prax, the building is dedicated to Zadkine’s sculptures and life story. He worked in wood, stone, concrete, plaster and bronze, and over 300 of his pieces are on display in the museum. The living quarters are also open to the public, lending the museum a sense of warmth and intimacy.
