I wanted to share some quiet morning moods from Musée Zadkine – a true hidden gem nestled at the back of a fairly nondescript yard close to Jardin du Luxembourg in Paris. The museum is dedicated to the artworks of Russian Empire-born artist Ossip Zadkine.

Entrance to the small museum is free of charge:

Musée Zadkine

100 bis rue d'Assas - 75006 Paris

P.S. I've recently been asked whether I've collected Paris tips somewhere, and realised I haven't exactly, but it's something I'd love to do! So, I intend to gradually compile a list of places that I love in Paris, perhaps categorised by arrondissement. This one would definitely be included, and filed under Montparnasse – an area that is still fairly non-touristy while offering plenty of intriguing nooks.

"Art is how we decorate space, 
music is how we decorate time.

– Jean-Michel Basquiat

Welcome to listen to the Poésie Privée playlist,
the melodies that decorated my time and filled my rooms 
while working on the shop and website.
It's time to share it on.

Bienvenue à écouter ici:
