The Lurçat house-studio
Jean and Simone Lurçat Foundation – Académie des beaux-arts.

The house-studio of the painter Jean Lurçat (1892-1966), is the first of the eight houses built in 1925 at the Villa Seurat by the architect André Lurçat (1894-1970), Jean Lurçat’s brother. Jean Lurçat lived here from 1925 to the end of his life.

It is today owned by the Académie des beaux-arts since the bequest of his widow Simone Lurçat.

This house is masterpiece of the Paris Modernist movement. It has been maintained in its original state with its décor and furniture, and it was listed as a historic monument in 2018.

The project to restore the house-studio will focus on highlighting André Lurçat’s innovative architecture and reinstating Jean Lurçat’s living and working spaces in this house. After the restoration work supervised by the Académie des Beaux-Arts, the house will open to the public and to scholars.
