Short description

Monument to Théophile Steinlen in the Joël Le-Tac Square

The monument to Théophile-Alexandre Steinlen (1859-1923) is located where the rue Saint-Vincent meets the Place Constantin Pecqueur, 75018 Paris. This monument was erected in 1936 by Paul Vannier.

Théophile Alexandre Steinlen, born in Lausanne on November 20, 1859 and died in Paris (18th arrondissement) on December 13, 1923, was a Swiss anarchist artist, painter, engraver, illustrator, poster artist and sculptor, naturalized French in 1901.  He is strongly committed to the left, in anarchist circles for which he illustrates many books and newspapers.

But it is especially his posters, such as the one for the Black Cat Tour, that are at the origin of his popularity. He also practiced sculpture on the theme of cats (Angora cat sitting). He also illustrated literary works, such as the 1903 reworking of the Soliloques du Pauvre by Jehan Rictus, and contributed to various humorous journals such as Gil Blas illustré, L'Assiette au Beurre (from No. 1), Le Rire and Les Hommes d'aujourd'hui, then Les Humoristes, which he founded in 1911 with Jean-Louis Forain and Charles Léandre.

Since 1883, Steinlen had been living on the Montmartre Hill, where he quickly became acquainted with the artistic personalities of the time. He became acquainted with Adolphe Willette and Antonio de La Gandara, with whom he frequented the Chat Noir, the cabaret run by Rodolphe Salis, from 1884 onwards, becoming friends with Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec. He naturally met Aristide Bruant there. He also frequented the café-restaurant Au Tambourin at 62, boulevard de Clichy.

He initially exhibited at the Salon des Indépendants in 1893, then regularly at the Salon des Humoristes.

Steinlen is buried a hundred meters away in the Saint-Vincent cemetery in Paris.

Joël Le-Tac Square - a tribute to a French Resistance fighter

It pays tribute to Joël Le Tac (1918-2005), French Resistance fighter, journalist and member of parliament. It is located at Place Constantin-Pecqueur in the Grandes-Carrières district of the 18th arrondissement of Paris. It is a green space created in 1935 under the name of "Square de la place Constantin-Pecqueur" and named since February 2, 2012 after Joël Le-Tac.

Joël Le Tac, born February 15, 1918 in Paris and died October 8, 2005 in Maisons-Laffitte (Yvelines), is a journalist, resistance fighter, companion of the Liberation, deported and French politician.

He joined the Free French Forces and took part in many dangerous commando operations in occupied France and helped to set up Resistance networks. Arrested in 1942, he was deported to Germany. After the war, he became a journalist and then a Gaullist deputy for Paris from 1958 to 1981. He was a companion of the Liberation,

Place Claude Nougaro - to remember the artist singer

The Place Claude Nougaro is located in Montmartre, at the end of the rue Junot. Officially at 42 Av. Junot, 75018 Paris. It is in this same street that Claude Nougaro lived for a long time before his expatriation to New York and then returned to the capital until the end of his life.

Claude Nougaro began his career on stage in 1954 at the Lapin Agile, a Parisian cabaret in Montmartre, reciting his poems. Claude Nougaro sent texts to Marguerite Monnot, composer of Édith Piaf, who put them to music (Méphisto, Le Sentier de la guerre).
It was at the Lapin Agile that he decided to sing his own lyrics to earn a living, in 1957 (first "known" title: Direction Vénus), while performing, for a decade, in other cabarets, the Liberty's, La Tête de l'art, Zèbre. During these years, Nougaro was also a lyricist for other performers, including Jacqueline François, Philippe Clay, Marcel Amont...

In October 1958, Président released his first recordings and a super 45 rpm came out, preceding the 33 rpm 25 cm Il y avait une ville which was released the following year. The songs are written with his partner Michel Legrand. The success is nevertheless manifested only in 1962.

In 1985, after Bleu Blanc Blues, an album considered disappointing in terms of results, Barclay does not renew his contract. Nougaro alludes to this in his song Mon disque d'été.

Nougaro sells his house on Avenue Junot in Montmartre and leaves for New York in search of inspiration. Produced by WEA, he wrote and recorded the album Nougayork, under the direction of Philippe Saisse, a renowned musician there, and his old friend Mick Lanaro as executive producer. In 1987, Claude Nougaro with the title song Nougayork gets one of his biggest hits. This resounding success re-launched his career and the opus, with its rock sounds, was a public and critical success, awarded in 1988 by the Victoires de la musique for best album and best male performer.

In 2003 and 2004, while he was already seriously affected by the disease, Claude Nougaro prepared a new album for the jazz label Blue Note Records, produced as the previous one by Yvan Cassar. Carried away by cancer on March 4, 2004, the artist did not finish his recording and the album La Note bleue was released posthumously on November 30, 2004

His funeral was celebrated in Toulouse in the Saint-Sernin basilica, whose carillon played the notes of his song Toulouse, and his ashes were scattered in the Garonne.

The mayor of the 18th arrondissement of Paris, Eric Lejoindre, declared at the inauguration of the square that bears his name: "In love with Montmartre, he illuminated Paris with his poetry and his texts. This morning we inaugurated the Place Claude Nougaro, along the Avenue Junot, as a tribute to this great artist who gave us so much".

Monument to Eugène Carrière also in the Square Joël Le-Tac

The Monument to Eugène Carrière is located at the intersection of Rue Caulaincourt and Avenue Junot, 75018 Paris. On the pedestal: HENRI SAUVAGE / ARCHITECT / JEAN-RENE CARRIERE / SCULPTOR. Jean-René Carrière is the son of Eugène Carrière.

Eugène Carrière is a French painter, teacher and lithographer, born on January 18, 1849 in Gournay-sur-Marne (Seine-Saint-Denis) and died on March 27, 1906 in Paris. Symbolist artist, he had an influence on the emergence of Fauvism.

He was a friend of Auguste Rodin and Antoine Bourdelle. His work influenced Henri Matisse and Pablo Picasso. Ivan Pokhitonov worked in his studio in the years 1877-1880. Eugene Carrière was also linked to writers whose portraits he executed, such as Paul Verlaine, Stéphane Mallarmé, Alphonse Daudet, Anatole France or Henri Rochefort. He expressed socialist convictions and joined the Dreyfus movement.

In 1890, he founded the Carrière Academy on rue de Rennes, where painters such as Henri Matisse, André Derain, Jean Puy, Francis Jourdain or Valentine Val were students; until 1905, he devoted himself to teaching art. Eugene Carrière, who also taught at Ferdinand Humbert, the former Cormon studio, at 104, boulevard de Clichy and at the Camillo academy, cour du Vieux-Colombier, attracted many young artists in search of freedom and independence to his academy. This place has the originality of being the breeding ground of future painters known as "Fauvists" and one of the first mixed studios in Paris.
