about this painting:
PARIS, MONTMARTRE AT NIGHT
The colors of Paris
To those who have been to Paris this painting will remind of one of their favorite places depicted many times in the paintings of such masters of impressionism as Toulouse-Lautrec, Renoir, Picasso, Van Gogh and others among the paintings of whom can be found those referred to different styles – abstract, pointillism, postimpressionism… And those who have not been to Paris probably heard about this place and have its own ideas about it. We hope that it fully corresponds to your ideas, although, of course, the colors in it are much brighter than in reality – we see a lot of red and yellow shades – firstly, the light of the lanterns, red awnings of street shops and pots with flowers under the windows. By the way, the lanterns dye with their light not only the street – the color is reflected in the wet sidewalk – but also the walls of the houses – their walls, already yellow, turn almost orange, which is in good harmony with the pink flowers in the pots.
The whole painting is filled with magic and enchantment of night Paris. Everyone knows that this is the city of love and romance. And these feelings are transmitted through the canvas. It seems that every person – at the house we can distinguish some black silhouettes – is in love with this city. Perhaps these lonely monsieurs are waiting for their madams with whom they have a date.
Sacré Cœur of the city
Montmartre is one of the most famous and picturesque areas of Paris. The famous 130-meter-high hill attracts tourists from all over the world with its rich history and unique atmosphere, picturesque streets and squares, beautiful churches, interesting museums, vibrant theaters and cabarets. For you, as always, we prepared some interesting facts about it:
- Cabaret "Moulin Rouge" opened on October 6, 1889 for the World Exhibition in Paris. It owes its name to the mill with red wings, specially created by the decorator Leon-Adolf Villett.
- On the famous wall of Montmartre in Paris, the words “I love you” are written in 311 languages of the world. It’s a place where lovers make wishes.
- Returning in the morning to the famous "ship-laundry", Picasso sometimes shot into the air. Bateau-Lavoir became the first Parisian home for young Picasso. He came here with his dog Frica in 1904. In the autumn of 1905, Fernanda Olivier moved to Picasso.
We offer you to plunge into this unforgettable atmosphere of Paris and feel yourself a part of this city.
