André Lhote and His International Students14 March 2020
On March 14 at 4 p.m., Villa Vassilieff, 21 Avenue du Maine 75015 Paris, will host a conversation in its library about André Lhote and the international influence of his teaching. On this occasion, the book André Lhote and His International Students (Innsbruck University press), will be presented by its two editors Zeynep Kuban Professor at the University of Istanbul (ITU) and Simone Wille, Professor at the Innsbruck University, who will discuss these topics with Dominique Bermann Martin, expert and niece of André Lhote, Fanny Drugeon, art historian, specialist in the cosmopolitan Paris of the 20th century, as well as Karin Siden and Anna Meister, respectively Director and Archivist of the Waldemarsudde Museum in Stockholm.
This book highlights the legacy of André Lhote's teaching and in particular the role he played in spreading modernism abroad. Teacher in several art academies in Montparnasse until the founding of his own academy 18 rue d'Odessa in 1925, he attracted many artists from all over the world. Due to the painter's archives it is possible, at the present time, to draw up a list of more than 1600 artists who have followed André Lhote in Paris as well as in the landscape classes on the grounds that he was dispensing the summers in Mirmande (from 1926) Gordes (1938) and La Cadière d'Azur (1948).
André Lhote and His International Students, is a collection of 13 essays by specialists of Turkish, Pakistani, Indian, Egyptian, Mexican, Australian, Yugoslav, South American, Swedish, Japanese and Iranian artists; illuminating the significant way in which the painter, through his teaching, his writings and his art practice, was able to transmit in a theoretical and formal way the modernist tendencies of art in the 20th century. This book, thus, is not only a recognition of an unjustly neglected artist, but also demonstrates how, thanks to him, artists from all over the world have contributed, reinterpreted and disseminated, the modernist movements that circulated in Paris during this period. Finally, André Lhote and His International Students, reports a microcosmic vision of a cosmopolitan Paris, that was shaped by the convergent flow and circulation of artists from all over the world.

Correlating cultural and ideological positions: André Lhote, Paris, and his former international studentsfrom 11 December 2017 to 12 December 2017
For many early to mid-twentieth century artists from around the world André Lhote's (1885-1962)theoritical and practical lessons were a basis for the development of individual and regional modernisms. The conference seeks to analyse to what extent André Lhote, as a key figure in global modernism and until now unjustly neglected, was able to give rise to forms of artistic production.

STOCKHOLM PRINS EUGEN WALDEMARSUDDE
Many Swedish artists studied under André Lhote. This exhibition is the first to focus on the extensive but unknown teacher-student relationships that began in the early 1910s between Lhote and his first Swedish students, Georg Pauli and Prince Eugen. In the ensuing five decades, Pauli and Eugen were followed by several generations of Swedish painters; some50 of these are featured in this presentation, including Siri Derkert, Olle Beartling, Philip von Schrantz and Elsa Danson Waghals. Works by Georges Braque, Robert Delaunay and other artists are also shown in the exhibition.
