Trip Report Maillol Museum

Jump to last reply

Today, after a morning and early morning at the Musée d'Orsay, we went to the Musée Maillol, on rue Grenelle, just one block from rue du Bac. There is a fascinating special exhibit of Venetian glass objects, from the 15th century to the present day, showing a wide variety of methods for making and decorating the glassware, as well as some very "modern-artist" items that defy written explanation. The upper floor has a large and diverse collection of works by Aristede Maillot himself, as well as some by important other artists his model and "companion" had collected herself. It was a surprisingly-enlightening visit, and we stayed much longer than I had expected.
