Espace Musées is very pleased to welcome the Dina Vierny Foundation – Musée Maillol in order to introduce its new exhibition “Dina Vierny – Un éclectisme électrique de Maillol à Marcel Duchamp”. This exhibition features a significant selection of 21 paintings and sculptures of 20th century art.

Dina Vierny, model of sculptor Aristide Maillol (1861-1944), is one of the main figures and witnesses of 20th century Art History. The city of Paris owes her the creation of the Dina Vierny Foundation – Musée Maillol in 1995, as well as the installation of Maillol’s monumental sculptures in the garden of the Carrousel (by the Louvre), thanks to the help of André Malraux.

After she met Maillol at the age of 15, she modeled for Raoul Dufy, Henri Matisse and Pierre Bonnard. Dina Vierny - Un éclectisme électrique de Maillol à Marcel DuchampAt Maillol’s death, she opened her own gallery rue Jacob in Paris, on the advice of Henri Matisse. She organized Serge Poliakoff’s first shows, exhibited Henri Laurens, Kandinsky, Dufy, Doucet, Gilioli, Marcel Duchamp…

A great collector, art dealer, curator, but also a resistance fighter, singer and bookseller, Dina Vierny was an unusual woman who fiercely dedicated her life to art and to the defense of the artists she loved.

At the dawn of her birth’s centenary, and ten years after her passing (1919-2019), Espace Musées is honored to celebrate this great feminine figure with an exhibition highlighting her main life’s achievements.
