WINDMILLS OF MONTMARTRE

1949 by Maurice Utrillo (1883-1955)

1/1

This 1949 painting by Utrillo exhibits superior execution. The fresh colors are subtly blended, creating a rustic vista of old Paris. The hills of Montmartre were once dotted with dozens of windmills used to grind the wheat grown on the plains below. The last standing windmill became home to Le Moulin de la Galette, a famous night club. Le Moulin Rouge was converted to a movie house. Maurice Utrillo was a French painter born as Maurice Valadon, son of Marie-Clementine "Suzanne" Valadon, an acrobat, model, and artist, who was well acquainted with several famous artists.
