Rarely visited musée…

Not likely to visit all the musées in Paris, but this gem was a treat on a sunny and warm day in Paris.
Musée Bourdelle is the former studio of sculptor Antoine Bourdelle (1861-1929). A fine example of a Parisian atelier, with  more than 500 of his works and his personal collection that includes Rodin, Ingres and Delacroix.  The impact that Bourdelle had on Matisse who came to the atelier to learn is obvious.
