This museum was once the home of sculptor Ossip Zadkine (1890-1967), and his collection has been turned over to the city for public viewing. Included are some 300 pieces of sculpture, displayed in the museum and the garden. Some drawings and tapestries are also exhibited. At these headquarters, where he worked from 1928 until his death, you can see how he moved from "left wing" cubist extremism to a renewed appreciation of the classic era. You can visit his garden for free even if you don't want to go into the museum -- in fact, it's one of the finest places to relax in Paris on a sunny day, sitting on a bench taking in the two-faced Woman with the Bird.
