The association of painters, sculptors, architects, printmakers and graphic artists called the Fondation Taylor was created in 1844 and is today one of the most important institutes supporting artists and their work.
Baron Taylor made the first charitable endowment in 1844 and since then the foundation has received many other donations that are the basis of our operation.
All endowments and donations are used to finance three types of actions: the mutual aid and award commission, the prize commission (largely financed by the charitable endowments of artists or their heirs) and the exhibition commission.
The mission of the members of the board and of the committee is to preserve and enrich these three objectives in order to develop the impact of our association.
Becoming a member of the Taylor means above all supporting a philanthropic movement to foster the conditions for creation, to show current art and to rediscover our rich past.
