For centuries Paris has been the city that artists love to paint, and in this beautifully illustrated lecture, Michel Witmer shares the most lovely and interesting depictions of Paris. Whether wandering through the Louvre or the ancient streets, artists found their inspiration in the historic city that embraced them.
