Site historique

The house where Max Ernst and his companion, Leonora Carrington, lived from 1938 to 1941. In 1939, Ernst was arrested because of his German nationality, but was released on September 23, 1939 when his friend Paul Eluard spoke up for him. He went back to Saint-Martin d'Ardèche, then his anti-Nazi convictions led him to leave France for the United States. From outside, a bas-relief sculpture by the surrealiste artist can be seen on the front of the house. A canvas he painted while in Saint-Martin d'Ardèche, called "A Moment of Calm" is exhibited at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C.
