Bourdelle was a great artist, and a pioneer of 20th century sculpture. He worked for a time with Rodin and there was mutual admiration between the two. He also taught sculpture. (Giacometti studied with him on and off for 5 years beginning in 1922).
In 1924 Bourdelle was made a commander of the Legion of Honor.
There is something very special about a museum that was once the home of the artist. You can almost picture him working and feel his inspiration.
If you’re interested in the lives of the artists as well as the art work, I highly recommend you pay a visit.
