Welcome to the Costi Museum
The former presbytery of Saint Jacques in Bergerac welcomes under the remarkable vaults of the cellar of the Petite mission the Costi Museum.
Constantin Papachristopoulos Born in Athens in 1906 and died in Paris in 2004 signed his works Costi and it is under this name that the artist is best known.
This pupil of Bourdelle was a figurative sculptor of the 1st half of the 20th century. Costi's work consisted of modelling clay and making bronzes, but he also dealt with marble carving.
In 1999 Costi donated 52 bronzes, 7 plasters, 7 drawings to the city of Bergerac . The 220 m2 museum opened its doors in 2001 and welcomes you to discover these works dedicated to the female body.
