Arthur Rimbaud on his death bed
by Hervé Constant

Welcome to the Rimbaud & Verlaine Foundation

The Rimbaud and Verlaine Foundation is using the French poets Arthur Rimbaud and Paul Verlaine as an inspirational starting point for a much wider mission to champion the arts and culture. Exploring the vital role played by the arts in education, inclusion, social capital building and cultural exchange, the Foundation is also developing a new and more sustainable business model for the arts, based around earned income.

In the midst of the pandemic the Rimbaud and Verlaine Foundation brought four artists together at Lauderdale House in London to record a series of classical songs: the soprano Rose Stachniewska, baritone Julien Van Mellaerts, pianist Florent Mourier and film maker Chris Lincé.

We shall be posting videos every week until March.
