I have been talking a lot (too much?) about artists having lived in my new area. Here is another example: Villa des Arts.
Cézanne (http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul_CÃ©zanne), Signac (http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul_Signac), Renoir (http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Auguste_Renoir), Toulouse-Lautrec (http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Henri_de_Toulouse-Lautrec), Dufy (http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Raoul_Dufy)... have been working / living here.
It was recently sold to an investment company, which will transform it into exclusive lofts for wealthy people.
There are a lot of these specific "atelier-flats" around. I doubt that they are today occupied by painters, sculptors...
