Francisque Poulbot

born in Saint-Denis in 1879 and died in Paris in 1946.

 Born of teacher parents, Francisque Poulbot is the eldest of six children. Gifted for drawing, he does not dare to attend the School of Fine Arts. From 1900, his drawings began to be published in the press. He moved to Montmartre. He will be one of the great figures of Montmartre, fully participating in the festive and associative life of the village and being the initiator of many projects that mark the Butte today. He was known to all the children of the rue Lepic, who, on leaving the school, came to see him at the café terrace where he was settling to ask them how their day had been and to sketch these little scenes of life that they told him. Thus the neologism "Poulbot" was created with reference to his many illustrations representing Parisian titi: street kids. Francisque Poulbot was known for his great generosity and children were always at the heart of his charitable projects.
