Historical Residents of Cité Falguière
During its 150 years of artistic history, Cité Falguière’s artists studios served as a working and living place to more than a hundred French and international artists. Some renowned names are Amedeo Modigliani, Tsuguharu Foujita, Constantin Brancusi, Chaïm Soutine, and Paul Gauguin. Others are lesser-known artists, including many Russian citizens (Belarusians, and Ukrainians), Japanese, Americans, Germans, British, Norwegians, Polish, Swiss, Swedish, Yugoslavians, Romanians, Serbians, Belgians, Portuguese, Hungarian, Turkish, Iranian and Cuban.
Research in progress
As part of our research initiative, we aim to uncover individual stories of all the Cité Falguière’s past residents, with focus on women, and artists from minority groups. We believe this action will enrich the study of the history of twentieth-century art, and in particular the École de Paris, while creating a research foundation for contemporary artists, scholars and the public.
