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.

The Rimbaud and Verlaine poetry house, Camden, London

R&V has worked with leading UK model making company Timothy Richards Ltd of Bath to create a superb model of the house where Rimbaud and Verlaine lived together in 1873 – a period that inspired some of their greatest poetry. This 20cm high scale replica captures the attractive shape of the property, an example of urban Regency design with a distinctive railway-influenced Camden vibe. Now everyone can ‘own’ the poetry house, and can celebrate its unique historical significance.

If you would like to order this limited edition scale model please register your interest by emailing us at

For every sale of the model Timothy Richards will make a £50 donation to the charity.
