Paris possesses this artist house dedicated to Ossip Zadkine, a Russian artist who emigrated to Paris in 1908, lived and worked in this house from 1928 to his death in 1967.
The museum was established by Valentine Prax, Zadkine's wife, who willed their home and studio since 1928, plus his personal collection, to the City of Paris. The museum was inaugurated in 1982 following her death, and has subsequently augmented its collection by purchases. It now contains about 300 sculptures, as well as drawings, gouaches, photographs, and tapestries.
In the collection you'll see more than 400 sculptures and roughly that many paintings, gouaches, drawings and photos documenting and spanning every period in this sculptor’s life and work.
Since 1995 the museum also presents temporary exhibitions, sometimes guest artists invited to confront Zadkine’s work with contemporary movements, sometimes just contemporary art.
