Impasse Ronsin

Impasse Ronsin, a street in the heart of the Montparnasse district of Paris, was a unique artists’ settlement and known for over 100 years as a place of art, contemplation, conversation, celebration, innovation, creation and destruction.

The Impasse Ronsin existed as an artists’ settlement in the Montparnasse district of Paris from 1886 to 1971, and was characterised by a diversity of artistic identities that were by no means merely avant-garde, but rather characterised an extremely broad spectrum, with artists ranging from Constantin Brâncusi, Max Ernst, Marta Minujín, Eva Aeppli, Niki de Saint Phalle and Larry Rivers to André Almo Del Debbio and Alfred Laliberté.

The exhibition presents over 50 artists with more than 200 works, all created in this magical place.
