I Love Paris in the Springtime - Notre Dame de Paris and La Seine
Painting - Oil On Canvas
Original palette knife oil painting on canvas / 50 x 50 (20 x 20 inches) / January 2017. Contemporary impressionist landscape oil painting who captures Notre-Dame de Paris and a Bateaux-Mouches boat on the Seine river, view from the Pont Saint-Michel. I was inspired to paint this scene while I was strolling on the streets of Paris on a wonderful spring day...
Notre-Dame de Paris (meaning "Our Lady of Paris"), also known as Notre-Dame Cathedral or simply Notre-Dame, is a medieval Catholic cathedral on the Ile de la Cite in the fourth arrondissement of Paris, France. The cathedral is widely considered to be one of the finest examples of French Gothic architecture, and is among the largest and most well-known church buildings in the world. The naturalism of its sculptures and stained glass are in contrast with earlier Romanesque architecture.
The original has been sold to an art collector from Cheshire, United Kingdom.
Paris is the capital of France and the country`s largest city. It is situated on the river Seine, in northern France, at the heart of the Ile-de-France region. The City of Paris, within its limits largely unchanged since 1860 is today one of the world`s leading business and cultural centres, and its influence in politics, education, entertainment, media, fashion, science and the arts all contribute to its status as one of the world`s major global cities. Paris is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world, with over 30 million foreign visitors per year. There are numerous iconic landmarks among its many attractions, along with world-famous institutions and popular parks.
Paris is a city to discover, seeing the sights, visiting the museums, they're part of the experience. But then jump on the metro or a bus and get off at a place you've never heard of, wander through a quartier where French mixes with Arabic or Vietnamese, have lunch in a local restaurant, poke your head into mysterious shops, or just perch on a cafe terrace with a vin blanc and let yourself fall in love with the city.
