BIENVENUE A LA

REPUBLIQUE DE MONTMARTRE

WELCOME TO THE REPUBLIC OF MONTMARTRE

Founded on 7th May 1921, on the initiative of the most famous artists in Montmartre, painters and draftsmen alike, the Republic of Montmartre has since continued its charitable and cultural actions. In the spirit shown by Poulbot, Willette, Forain, Neumont and Joë Bridge, and thanks to the voluntary commitment of its members, citizens, members of parliament, consuls, ambassadors and ministers, it works in aid of disadvantaged children as well as bringing together visual artists, writers and musicians. Custodian of the Montmartre tradition, its members distinguish themselves by wearing a red scarf, black cape and hat, the famous outfit of Aristide Bruant, immortalised by Toulouse-Lautrec. Clinging to the slopes of its village, this beautiful and great institution ensures that the rebellious yet human spirit on which the legend of Montmartre is built is preserved, while remaining loyal to its motto: Rejoice in doing good !
