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_Cézanne), 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...

I doubt artists - unless they are alraady very well known and earn a lot of money can afford to live in these places. But maybe artists earn more money today than at the time Renoir, Dufy and Cezanne painted.

Incroyable ! Et où habitent donc les artistes actuels qui seront reconnus demain ????
Je me pose aussi toujours cette question
Est on plus intéressant quand on est mort ?
