Léonard Foujita 1886-1968


Uncategorisable French-japanese artist, Foujita is one of the most famous  artist of the Ecole de Paris.

He alternatively embodies the image of the Années Folles' Dandy, the perfectionist painter, the photographer open to the world, and the everyday magician.

All-round artist, he knows, seizes and distorts all the social and artistic codes with lot of humor and kind thoughts for children.

Foujita's artistic universe bridges successfully the East and West, as well as traditions and modernity.

The interbreeding that he demonstrated all his life is a great learning basis for youth.

Reflected by this singular artist, Foujita Foundation aims at giving openness to the world and know-how through artistic practices to youth in distress.
