Inscription. “Nous retournerons tous au Bateau-Lavoir, nous n’aurons vraiment été heureux que là...” Jusqu’à sa mort, Picasso (1881-1973) garde la nostalgie du Montmartre rural de sa jeunesse, avec ses fermes, se vergers et ses cabarets pittoresques. Arrivé sur la Butte à 19 ans, il prend ici en 1904 un atelier où il exécute les dernières oeuvres de la période bleue, celles de la période rose, inspirées par ses amours avec Fernande Olivier, et les “Demoiselles d’Avignon” (1907), prélude au cubisme. Alors plus connue sous le nom de “Maison du Trappeur”, l’ancienne manufacture de pianos, divisée en ateliers d’artistes vers 1889 et rebaptisée par Max Jacob, a vu ses vastes baraquements de bois, labyrinthe de coursives et d’escaliers, réduits en cendres lors d’un incendie, le 12 mai 1970.
