Association “les Artistes du bout du Monde”
Grez sur Loing (France)
The site of Grez-sur-Loing, located near Barbizon in the south-east of Paris, was discovered by Jean-Baptiste Camille Corot in the early 1860s. It is the very example of the international artists colony who wish to put highlighting both the Routes of Impressionism in Europe and our partner euroArt.
We therefore particularly welcome the arrival of the Association “Les Artistes du Bout du Monde”, in charge of promoting the site, in 2019 within the Impressionisms Routes Network, Cultural Route of the Council of Europe.
The first American and British colonies arrived in Grez in 1870 and were followed by the famous Scandinavian colonies, well known in particular through the works of the Swedish Karl Nordström or Carl Larsson. The Japanese themselves came to Grez in the 1890s.
The Association “Artistes du Bout du Monde” aims to identify the artists who have resided in Grez-sur-Loing and the works they have produced there, to publicize their history and to be in contact with museums. and the cultural spaces that promote the painters of Grez-sur-Loing.
The day of March 21, 2020 (see herewith) will make it possible to concretize this will to promote a site and a colony of exceptional artists within the framework of the European activities of Impressionisms Routes.
