History of Paris
The Flowered City
In 1878, a developer began the construction of a series of artist’s studios with materials recycled from the dismantling of the Universal Exposition, upon a vacant area next to a small 18th century house. The fame of the renters and occupants would make the City famous: Eugene Grasset, initiator of the 1900 style; Pierre Roy, painter of surrealist still lifes. Rodin, Bourdelle and Maillot polished their bronzes here. The studio of Daniel de Monfreid was Gaugin’s precarious loging. No. 9 was that of Modigliani; No. 22 housed Jean-Paul Laurens, then Cesar Domela. In 1973, the determination of the painter Cadiou and artists of the City made it a protected site.
