Dream with the artists of Montmartre

If Paris is the city of art, Montmartre is its hilltop village of artists. Both foreign and French painters in the 19th century congregated in the lively district with dreams of making their mark on the art world. In the local restaurants, bars and cafes, liberal artists discussed and developed new techniques, giving birth to modern art movements like Impressionism, Post-Impressionism and Symbolism.

One pioneer in modern art history is Vincent van Gogh, who developed his signature style painting in a tiny apartment he shared with his brother. The Impressionist influence on his work can be seen in the 200 paintings he produced during the two years he lived in Montmartre.

Sunbathe on the Island of La Grande Jatte

As landscape painting became more popular in Parisian artwork, artist frequently stepped out of their studios to set up their easels outside. Impressionist and Post-Impressionist painters like Claude Monet, Vincent van Gogh and Georges Seurat often experimented with new techniques at the park on the Island of La Grande Jatte.

One of the Island's most famous paintings, ‘Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte,’ is a scene of the upper-middle class enjoying a sunny day by the river. Georges Seurat painted the piece with dot-like brush strokes in a style that later came to be known as Pointillism. He was so precise and detailed with his work that it took him 10 years to complete just seven paintings.

“There is but one Paris… the French air clears up the brain and does good – a world of good.”

― Vincent van Gogh

Fall in love with the Seine River

Love is the eternal muse of artists in the past, present and future. And at the center of Parisian romance is the Seine River. Lined with magnificent monuments like the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre and Notre Dame, the river and its dazzling bridges have enchanted the hearts of lovers from all over the world.

Albert Marquet was a French Fauvist painter who fell in love with the picturesque Seine River and made sure his apartments in Paris always overlooked its waters. He consistently painted Pont Neuf, the Seine’s oldest standing bridge, from the various views of it he had from home.

Even at night, Pont Neuf glimmers alluringly with light. Observe the different colors, textures and movement of water in the paintings of Marquet and let his affection for the river draw you into its appeal.
