Fondation Dina Vierny, Banyuls-sur-mer

Fondation Dina Vierny serves as a museum dedicated to the paintings and sculptures of artist Aristide Maillol. Discover the sensitive works of this Banyuls sur Mer native, who was often overshadowed by his giant contemporary, August Rodin. The artist would retreat here, among the olive trees and vineyards, to meditate and work. Browse the collection of his works in the intimate museum, then take a walk through the peaceful sculpture garden. The museum also features temporary exhibits. Note that there are no refreshments available on site. Put Fondation Dina Vierny on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Banyuls-sur-mer trip planner .

  • Museum destined for fans of the sculptor, or statues of women... Museum interesting, for the part of the artist's life, but disappointing side works: I preferred exposure Maillol Museum of Céret in 2016, she was more detailed and more rich in works. Rest to be in the House of the master can make the difference for some. Note that the toilet in slot floor are particularly worked... very beautiful mosaic, and sinks in copper...

  • Beautiful landscape before arriving at the Maillol Museum beautiful exhibition of statues, some paintings and a film telling the life of Maillol at Banyuls after Rodin was he, if I had money I would like to acquire a few statuettes

  • Too expensive for a small museum where it has quickly made the rounds, fortunately there is the film that traces the life of the artist who saves a little visit. If the building is located in a beautiful setting.
