Léon Fauché (born Briey (Meurthe-et-Moselle) in 1868[1] - 1950[2]) was a French painter who in 1901, with Anquetin, organised the Salon des Refusés at the Pavillon des Arts Décoratifs, and founded the Association The Studio (L'Atelier) with Armand Point.[1]

Fauché studied at the École des Beaux-Arts in Nancy and then with Aimé Morot and Chartran in Paris. He exhibited at the Salon des Indépendants with Toulouse-Lautrec, Dethomas and Anquetin. He also showed his work at the Salon of the Société Nationale des Beaux-Arts[1] and The Volpini Exhibition, 1889.[3]
