Musee Maillol

Aristide Maillol is best known for his larger than life sculptures of voluptuous women. The Maillol museum was built on the private collection of Mrs. Dina Vierny (his primary model). The museum also houses masters of French naive art, including Matisse, Degas, Picasso, Ingres, CÚzanne, Suzanne Valadon, Foujita, Dufy, Bonnard, Redon, Gauguin, Rodin, Poliakoff, Kandinsky, Duchamp, Duchamp-Villon, Villon, Gilioli, Couturier, Zitman and other artists. It is housed in an elegant former nunnery. Only the exterior photos are mine, as photography is not allowed in the museum. Currently, the museum is also presenting a temporary photography exhibit of photos taken by Burt Stern of Marilyn Monroe for a Vogue shoot in 1962.
