Les Contes Étranges de Niels Hansen Jacobsen
Now on - May 31, 2020

The great Dane Niels Hansen Jacobsen – not to be confused with other great Dane Hans Christian Andersen, or other Great Dane Scooby Doo – left his mark on Paris. Now, the Musée Bourdelle is celebrating a finely sculpted life.

Jacobsen, a peer of Antoine Bourdelle, spent a decade in Paris between 1892 and 1902. It was here that he perfected his craft. Freed from the shackles of academia, the sculptor forged himself anew in the flames of his kiln.

The Bourdelle has loaned Jacobsen's strange and dreamlike works from as far away as Vejen in Denmark, along with a number of pieces usually on display in other prestigious Parisian locations like the Petit Palais and Musée d'Orsay.


Antoine Bourdelle had a prolific career which included collaborations with fellow sculptor Auguste Rodin, of The Thinker fame. Musée Bourdelle gathers the artist's masterpieces and lesser-known works at his studio in the heart of Paris.

The museum retains much of its original splendor, with personal mementos still occupying their original places. See plaster casts in the great hall, sketches from throughout Bourdelle's life and career, and roam the garden with its myriad of bronze statues.
