Résumé

It's famous for Utrillo's painting of it. Ramon Pichot bought this little house around 1905. Also a painter, he was a friend of the Catalan Dali and the Spaniard Pablo Picasso. He often received them in this house, which served as his studio.

In 1908, he married Germaine Gargallo, a Montmartre figure and model for the painters. After a trip to Spain, Germaine repainted the outside walls pink and opened a restaurant.

The story goes that Utrillo made La Maison Rose famous by painting it in one of his pictures. However, it was Élisée Maclet, a modest painter, but recognized at the time as (or more) renowned than Utrillo, who was his friend. He painted La Maison Rose and Montmartre long before Utrillo.

Description complète

The Pink House is the little story of the Catalan Ramon Pichot, at n° 2 rue de l'Abreuvoir (at the corner of rue des Saules), on the Butte Montmartre. It is known because of the painting of Utrillo which represents it. Ramon Pichot bought this small house around 1905. He was also a painter and a friend of Dali, also a Catalan, and the Spanish artist Pablo Picasso. He often received them in this house which served as his studio.

The legendary house painted in pink

In 1908, he married Germaine Gargallo, a Montmartre figure and model for painters. After a trip to Spain, Germaine repainted the exterior walls in pink and opened a restaurant. Their restaurant was of course frequented by the residents of the Bateau Lavoir and their artist friends.

Is the fame of the The Pink House due to painter Utrillo?

The story goes that Utrillo made the Pink House famous by painting it on one of his pictures. However, it was Élisée Maclet, a modest painter, but recognized at the time, as famous (or more so) than Utrillo who was his friend. He painted La Maison Rose and Montmartre well before him. It is now admitted that Maclet's style greatly influenced that of Utrillo, a young boy who admired his elder. However, Maclet fell into oblivion after the economic crisis of 1930.

The The Pink House before and during the Second World War

The history of the establishment before and during World War II remains a mystery. Photographs seem to indicate that it was a cabaret for a few years.

The revival with the Miolano family

In 1948, Beatrice Miolano, originally from Northern Italy, bought this small French restaurant. She was sometimes helped or replaced by her son Jean Miolano. Later, the restaurant was put under management.

The place will be frequented by a multitude of artists, in particular the chansonniers who perform in Pigalle and in the Montmartre cabarets. Later, we also meet Camus, Alain Delon, Dalida, etc. ...

In 2017, Beatrice's granddaughter took over the establishment with a new team. The philosophy of the place revolves around the memory of the Montmartre village, its vegetable gardens and the family history of the owners. This new team wishes to bring together the neighborhood community, Parisians and visitors around a good table, welcoming, creative and responsible.
