The Maison Picassiette is an example of naive architecture made up of earthenware and glass mosaics cast in cement. It is located in Chartres and depends on the Museum of Fine Arts of the city.

The house was built by one man Raymond Isidore (8 September 1900 - 7 September 1964), says Picassiette, municipal employee of the city of Chartres for which he worked as a roadmender, then sweeper of the cemetery.
