Why Maria Thym chose 15th Vaugirard
Many famous artists have lived in, or visited these studios including Fernand Léger, Jean Cocteau, Arbus, Bernt Silva, the poet Khalil Gibran. Our studio (atelier No. 9), was the atelier and home of the painter and sculptor Louis Bresson (1896-1983) whose works are celebrated in a museum in his hometown of Rosieres in the Ardeche.
