Académie de la Grande Chaumière

Page history last edited by Thomas Kutzli 9 years, 12 months ago

The Académie de la Grande Chaumière (academy of the large thatched cottage) is an art school in the VIe arrondissement of Paris, France. The school was founded in 1902 by the Swiss Martha Stettler (1870-1946)(often spelled "Marthe"), who refused to teach the strict academic rules of painting of the Ecole-des-Beaux-Arts. It opened the way to the "Art Indépendant" (Independent Art). It was renamed Académie Charpentier in 1957.

An attraction of this atelier was the fees, even lower that the Académie Julian (which had to be paid in advance). All that was provided was a model and warmth in the winter.[2]
