Foujita, from Montparnasse to Villiers-le-Bâcle, itinerary of a painter
Fifty years ago, the 29 January 1968, disappeared the painter Leonardo Foujita.
He was one of the most admired artists of the inter-war period, creating a refined and delicate figurative work.
The Essonne Department is committed to preserving and enhancing its last workshop, in his home in Villiers-le-Bâcle. A place of exceptional memory, this house offers the visitor a more intimate perception of what was Foujita's life.
The Department also preserves a large part of the artist's collections, including exceptional paintings that are returning to Essonne after a long journey in Japan.
This year is an opportunity to highlight a rare heritage that Essonne strives to make available to all audiences by developing cultural partnerships.
From the neighborhood of Montparnasse where the painter had his habits, the small village of Villiers-le-Bâcle, the intimacy of the artist is discovered.
The inauguration will take place on:
Monday 29 January 2018 at Foujita House-Workshop
7 / 9, Gif road to Villiers-le-Bâcle
