Exhibition of Croatian sculptor Ivan Meštrović opens at Paris museumAn exhibition showcasing a group of works by Ivan Meštrović, regarded by many experts as one of the most important 20th-century Croatian sculptors, has opened at the Musée Rodin in Paris.

Croatian foreign minister Vesna Pusic was on hand to open a display of 12 works by the acclaimed sculptor. Other interesting items on show include letters which Meštrović and fellow sculptor Auguste Rodin exchanged and an essay written by Meštrović 20 years after Rodin’s death.

Organised as part of the ongoing Croatia Festival in France and the 50th anniversary of the death of the Croatian sculptor, the exhibition aims to shed light on one of the most interesting and enigmatic figures in European architecture.

Running at the popular institution until January 6, the exhibition is just one of many fantastic events to attend whilst taking a break in one of the excellent hotels in Paris over the coming months.
