Foujita's workshop and house



In 1991, Kimiyo Foujita donated her husband's last studio, the Franco-Japanese painter Léonard Foujita, to the Departmental Council of Essonne.
Located in the Mérantaise valley, the small rural house was remodeled by the painter in the early 1960's. In this preserved site, the visitor can discover the intimate atmosphere of a painter trained at the School of Paris.
On the top floor of the house, the artist's studio is kept intact. Brushes, pigments, models and murals (preparation of the work done in the chapel "Notre Dame de la Paix" in Reims) reveal all the wealth and secrets of a creator.
In the presbytery, a reception area of ​​the place of memory, the visitor can prolong his visit through temporary exhibitions and by consulting the works kept in the documentation center.

> Museum of Modern Art of Paris
> Faure Museum, Aix-les-Bains
> Museum of Fine Arts, Reims
