Place du Tertre 8F (45.5 x 37.9cm) Written by Yukihiko Hama
Place du Tertre is a square located on Montmartre Hill in the 18th arrondissement of Paris, and is a symbol of Paris' charm and history.
This square is lined with cafes, restaurants, souvenir shops, and more, making it a picturesque place to visit Montmartre in Paris. In the early 20th century, many painters such as Pablo Picasso and Maurice Utrillo lived and worked here.
The paintings depict people enjoying coffee and drinks on cafe terraces, and many artists also paint landscapes and portraits.
This work vividly conveys how it is a bustling place for tourists and locals to enjoy themselves.
