Drawing almost exclusively on works from the Giacometti Foundation, this small exhibition shows attractive examples of Giacometti sculptures along with some of his contemporaries.

I adore Maillol, so I thoroughly enjoyed this little museum. They have a Giacometti exhibit on right now, and seeing the contrast between the two sculptors is worth a trip. And if you can't get enough of Maillol, go to the Tuileries and revel in...More

Went to the very interesting Fujita expo here. I can report that this museum works very well as a display space. The permanent collection of Maillol's sculpture is important in art history and a must for fans.

Went to see the extraordinary Japanese early 20thC artist Fujita contemporary of Cezanne and Picasso. Some of his work is inevitably derivative but his later 'white' period of simple white portraits with just a hint of colour are sublime. Well curated and presented. Interesting choice....More

I am not especially passionate about art or at least paintings but I admit that Foujita's life history is intriguing and his paintings catch the attention.

The occasion of my visit was the Foujita exhibition, and it was also May 1st when almost all the other museums in Paris are closed. This was a good choice, in fact, and an eye opener, to discover a very interesting painter of the Ecole...More

What is good about this place is that there are often interesting exhibitions in what is essentially a smallish space. Its well located in the left Bank, like all in Paris, more or less walkable. Often a must to see interestingly curated shows.

No but the permanent collection is small so I would only recommend going with no exhibition if you are a big Maillol fan. The Rodin Museum is a better bet for sculpture particularly in the summer as you can wander around the... More
