The Artists

Category: Sense of Place

We were staying in Montmarte, Paris and decided to go up the hill to see the cathedral at Sacre Couer, the highest point in Paris. After visiting the church, we meandered down the hill and came across the artists painting in a square on quite a cold day in spring. The colour and camaraderie of the artists was as striking as their paintings.

Location: Sacre Couer, Montmarte, Paris
