The Académie de la Grande Chaumière is an art school in the Montparnasse district of Paris, France.

History[edit]

The school was founded in 1904 by the Catalan painter Claudio Castelucho, in rue de la Grande Chaumière in Paris, near to the Académie Colarossi.[1][2] From 1909 the Académie was jointly directed by the painters Martha Stettler, Alice Dannenberg and Lucien Simon.[3] The Académie de la Grande Chaumière became famous in the early twentieth century and opened the way to Art Indépendant. It was dedicated to both painting and sculpture, and did not teach the strict academic rules of painting of the École des Beaux-Arts. An attraction was the low level of fees, even lower than those of the Académie Julian (which had to be paid in advance). It was said that all that was provided was a model and warmth in the winter.[4]

In 1957, the Académie de la Grande Chaumière was acquired by the Charpentier family, founders of the Charpentier Academy. It still operates under its original name, and provides two free workshops, one for painting and drawing, the other for sketches, as well as evening classes.
