Dora Maar House (France) - Fellowships for residencies
Located in the village of Ménerbes, in one of the most beautiful regions of Southern France, this 18th-century town house was purchased in 1944 by Pablo Picasso for Dora Maar, the artist and Surrealist photographer who was his companion and muse in the late 1930s and early 1940s. Maar (1907–1997) owned the house until her death, after which a resident of both Houston and Ménerbes bought and renovated the house to transform it into a retreat for writers, scholars, and artists.
The Brown Foundation Fellows Program at the Dora Maar House is made possible through a grant from the Brown Foundation, Inc., in Houston. The program has been directed by the Museum of Fine Arts of Houston (MFAH) since 2006.
Outstanding mid-career professionals in the arts and humanities are encouraged to apply for residencies from the Brown Foundation Fellows Program at the Dora Maar House.
There is a $20 application fee for a Dora Maar fellowship. The MFAH provides travel expenses to and from the house at the beginning and end of the residency as well as reasonable shipping costs for materials such as books, research files, and art supplies. The equivalent of $50 a day is provided for living expenses. Proof that a fellow has all the necessary documents, such as passports and visas, must be provided to the MFAH at least two months prior to the residency date.
Deadline for applications: 15 October (for fellowship terms beginning February 1 or after and ending no later than June 30).
