  • Once in this House full of Bohemian life-Picasso, Akhmatova, Modigliani, Matisse, Mofra and other great people lived or visited here. Appalling conditions-one water faucet on all heating stoves-buržuek, creaking floors, lack of electricity and gas-do not hinder the work. However, in 1970, receiving laundry "burned almost to ashes, stayed only a facade on the Piazza of Émile-Goudeau, where curious installation (after the fire House was rebuilt of concrete).

  • It is a place where at various times stayed such famous personalities as Picasso, Akhmatova, Appooliner, while still quite poor and unrecognised; i.e., this House was advertised as housing for the poor artists, etc. Is located in Montmartre, on the lively square with cafes, street artists.

  • Be sure to include this place in your itinerary on Montmartre: the House in which Picasso lived before becoming famous is located on the square with a unique atmosphere and street musicians. Bato-translated in French as "boat, ship"-so called because the beds there were standing on top of one another, as in the cabins of the sailors. But it was very cheap and the poor artists could afford housing there. On the façade of the House posted a showcase with interactive installations of lithographs by Picasso. On the square is one of the oldest drinking fountains in the city in the form of four bronze nymphs, holding over his head.
