Perhaps more than any other neighborhood in Paris, Montparnasse has changed a lot since the last century, a time when artists were living and creating in the area. There are still a few places recalling those glorious days and this gallery walk will reveal them to you.
The past meets the present at former artists’ studios like the Villa Vassilieff, now a contemporary art center, and a lithography studio where such artists as Matisse and Chagall worked. You will also visit a selection of contemporary art and photography galleries that showcase the creations of artists working today.
