Nancy B Negley Artists Residency Program
Ménerbes, France

Nancy B Negley Artists Residency Program based at The Dora Maar House in Ménerbes, France, offers residencies of one to two months to mid-career arts and humanities professionals to focus on their areas of expertise.

Located in Ménerbes, one of the most beautiful villages in France, this 19th century town house was the property of General-Baron Robert (1772–1831), a native of Ménerbes who received numerous honors during the Napoleonic wars in Spain, and was bought in 1944 by Dora Maar, surrealist artist and photographer. Companion and muse of Picasso from the late 1930s to the early 1940s, following their breakup Dora spent each summer in solitude in Ménerbes. After her death in 1997, an American arts patron, Nancy Brown Negley, bought and renovated the house to create a residency for writers, academics and artists.

There are regular monthly Salons (March – November) held to showcase the residents’ work to the local community.

The Dora Maar House has four private bedrooms, each with a private bath, three studies for writers and scholars, a studio for artists, and a piano. There are shared kitchen, library, living and dining rooms, along with two beautiful gardens. The house is equipped with high-speed wireless internet, printer, fax, and laptops for the fellows’ convenience.

Artpil periodically publishes submitted announcements of outside opportunities we do not administer. We recommend researching further prior to submitting, especially if entry fees are required.

    Strictly brunettes. Indeed brunette one, brunette the other.
    Capricious by poetics the first by birth, smooth as a straight line the second. The birthplaces of both are Parthenopean. As for one rooted on the cliffs of Posillipo where she also spent the resilient months of the recent Pandemic, while the other belongs to that blood material that protrudes into the vessel of the great swarming artery of Via Foria and its labyrinthine environs, where she still resides.
