This charming show celebrates an extensive body of work that will transport the viewer into the seductively beautiful streets of Paris, a city made for lover — lovers of light, literature, cuisine, and the good life.

This is a city like no other in the entire world, where the people greet you with “Bonjour,” and the cuisine and picturesque cityscapes are phenomenal. Where else can lovers kiss and hug on top of the Eiffel Tower glancing down at the quaint streets below? Paris may be known as the City of Light, but it’s also the City of Passion. And for centuries, artists have been infatuated with depicting the people living, working and playing, side by side, in the city that offers more than just the finest hospitality.

Artists like Eugene Galien-Laloue, Edouard Cortes, P. Pissarro, Alexander Kuznecov, Payes, Fischer, Szertz, Tomaylla, and Wilkinson offer a glimpse into the heart of Paris. Scenes that depict the Boulevard Saint-Germain, the Louvre Museum, the famous flower market, and Notre Dame Cathedral, all main staples of the Parisian life that is so vibrant and full of life.

This city is not just a romantic lovers’ haven, but it is a city of world importance as a leader in the business, educational, artistic, historic, intellectual, diplomatic, religious sectors. It is paramount in world relations being a center for international travel, too.
