L' Atelier Brancusi, Paris

4.4
#69 of 185 in Museums in Paris
Hidden away in a narrow street, L' Atelier Brancusi provides a glimpse into the working space of one of Europe's greatest Modernist sculptors. Born in Romania in 1876, Constantin Brancusi spent most of his life in France, where he created some of his best-known pieces. The recreated studio, designed by architect Renzo Piano, contains about 130 original sculptures, 80 pedestals, 40 drawings, and over 1,000 photographs and photographic glass plates. Bracusi spent his final years regrouping and photographing some of his most evocative sculptures, intent on achieving what he considered an ideal arrangement. Unlike conventional gallery and museum exhibits, the studio allows visitors to see the artist's pieces in the context of his personal working space.

  • This intimate hard to find museum in Paris is in the former house and garden of the sculptor Brancusi  more »
  • Free Atelier Museum, in a modern structure by Renzo Piano. The 4 halls are a little crowded, the works are seen from an external glass and you try to locate them in a legend alongside. Few explanations about the artist

  • This is a "museum" that respects entirely Brancusi's old workshop and you can see almost all his art pieces. Moreover, it helps you understand his life and, in fact, what was going through his mind. However, I had an unpleasant visit there. The staff was rude and impolite with my group and what is more, even though the museum closes at 6 PM, we were forced to leave twenty minutes before. Thus, we did not manage to fully enjoy our visit there.
  • A great place to see and to understand what is going through an artist's head.
