Quentin de la Tour, in addition to his immense talent, was also a humanist and a friend of the encyclopaedists. He sought to promote philanthropic projects. Having become rich, his portraits sold at a high price, in 1784 he retired to his native town of Saint-Quentin. There he founded a free school of drawing, financed a foundation for women in childbirth and another for old crippled craftsmen.

Giovanni Giacometti, "Autoportrait", 1925. Giovanni Giacometti was born on 7 March 1868 in Stampa, Switzerland. After studying at the Munich School of Decorative Arts, he moved to Paris to attend the Académie Julian.
A painter of flamboyant colours, close to Fauvism, he gave his three sons a passion for art.
The eldest, Alberto, born in 1901, began his career as a painter with the same richness of colour. He would become one of the most important sculptors in the history of art.
Diego, born in 1902, turned to the decorative arts, notably by creating immediately recognisable bronze furniture (Picasso Museum in Paris, Maeght Foundation, Kronenhalle restaurant in Zurich, etc.).
In 1902 his daughter Ottilla was born, who died giving birth to Silvio in 1937.
Bruno, born in 1907, was an appreciated and recognized architect. I remember him and his vitality, he bowed out in 2012 at 104 years old!
Fascinated by the evolution of modern art and confident in the new generation embodied by his son, Giovanni Giacometti wrote on 18 February 1933 to his friend, the collector Henri-Auguste Widmer, owner of this Self-Portrait: "I understand very well your remarks on these new manifestations of sculpture. In my opinion, pure form can be used to express impressions and sensations that were not previously possible. Sculpture should be a creation of living forms that exist by themselves and not a rough imitation of nature... Art has always evolved and it is the youth that should set out on new paths. Those who follow do not go forward, said Leonardo.

Tsugouharu Foujita in 1928, "Autoportrait au chat".
A cat lover, he painted and drew them throughout his life.
Arriving in France in 1913, he quickly became one of the colourful characters who made Montparnasse a world-famous art district.
He adopted the name Leonardo in 1959 in honour of Blessed Leonardo Kimura, a martyr in Japan, but also as a tribute to Leonardo da Vinci.
