Paris Private Tour by an Art Historian: In the Footsteps of the Impressionists

Explore one of the most picturesque and romantic areas of Paris. This private tour guided by an Art Historian will bring to life the history and drama that made Montmartre, a famous magnet for artists. You will walk the streets and squares where Renoir, Utrillo, Picasso and Modigliani lived, worked and loved. Masterpieces like the “Bal du Moulin de la Galette” and « Les Demoiselles d’Avignon » were created here. Your visit will start from the Moulin Rouge and the Moulin de la Galette, cabarets and dance halls which were focal points of this bohemian neighbourhood. You will walk past the studios and ateliers where the Impressionists worked – now the Musee de Montmartre - and end with the breath-taking view from the Basilica of Sacre Coeur.

    Stop At: Le Bateau-Lavoir, Paris France

    Passing by the Bateau Lavoir we climb to the Musee’ de Montmartre.

    Formerly a ballroom and piano factory, Bateau Lavoir was squatted and divided into twenty small workshops in 1889. Distributed along a corridor, small rooms were linked without heating and with a single point of water. [1]The name "Le Bateau-Lavoir" was coined by French poet Max Jacob. The building was dark and dirty, almost seeming to be scrap pile rather than a dwelling. On stormy days, it swayed and creaked, reminding people of washing-boats on the Seine River, hence the name. (Wikipedia)

    Stop At: Au Lapin Agile, 22 rue des Saules, 75018 Paris France

    This evocative Museum recaptures the feeling of those past Bohemian days with its old posters, paintings, photos and recreation of period rooms. The building that now houses the Museum was rented at various times by Renoir, Dufy, Suzanne Valadon and her alcoholic son Utrillo. Here one can see the tiny Montmartre Vineyard.We will visit the renovated atelier of Suzanne Valadon, Manet’s pupil, which gives us further insight into the life and passions of the Impressionists who lived in this area.
