The can-can  is a high-energy, physically demanding dance that became a popular music hall dance in the 1840s, continuing in popularity in French cabaret to this day. Originally danced by both sexes, it is now traditionally associated with a chorus line of female dancers. The main features of the dance are the vigorous manipulation of skirts and petticoats, along with high kicks, splits, and cartwheels. More on the can-can

Pál Fried (16 June 1893 in Hungary – 6 March 1976 in New York City) was a Hungarian artist. His oil paintings were usually of dancers, nudes, and portraits, and his subjects were almost always women, although he also painted Paris, seascapes, and cowboys and landscapes of the American West. He signed his paintings, as is usual in Hungarian, with his surname first as “Fried Pál”. At times, this particular artist would make several, almost identical versions of the same oil painting, except he would use slightly different facial expressions and/or would try different colour schemes.

Fried immigrated to the United States in 1946 after World War II, and became a U.S. citizen in 1953. He lived in Los Angeles and New York City. More on Pál Fried

With its cobbled streets, stunning Basilica, artists, bistros … Montmartre is full of charm! Perched on the top of a small hill in the 18th arrondissement, the most famous Parisian district has lost none of its village atmosphere that appealed so much to the artists of the 19th and 20th centuries. A real melting pot of art and inspiration for the cinema, Montmartre still gives as much pleasure to those who stroll around it and figures high on the list for a stay in Paris. More on Montmartre

Located along the route up from Place des Abbesses to Montmartre, next to the Bateau-Lavoir building where Picasso once had a workshop, Chez Camille has lost none of its charm. The tiny terrace and sprinkling of tables in this place perched high above the hubbub of the city are always keenly sought after. More on Chez Camille

“I was attracted to the look and character of this Parisian restaurant, which is often used by artists and musicians. I found painting the sidewalk and road interesting as well, as it was an strong contrast to the red of the restaurant…” Christopher James

Christopher James was born in County Durham, England. James has been a serious painter for over 25 years. He studied fine art at the University of Northumbria, though is mostly self taught. He has exhibited in London, Kent and Edinburgh and his paintings have attracted collectors from the UK and internationally. He dreamt of being an artist from the age of 12 and discovering biblical images by Rembrandt in a family bible had sparked an early fascination with dramatic light and form. His compositions of atmospheric street scenes, landscapes and figure studies are informed by a combination of oil sketches, photography and memory. Ultimately striving to create qualities of light, which reflect deeper memories, emotions and imagination. At the same time capturing sacred and timeless qualities of people, architecture and nature. ​ Many artists from early Renaissance to the present day have been an influence on his progress. Especially Andrea Del Sarto, Van Gogh, Sargent, Delacroix, Rembrandt, Artemisia Gentileschi, Sickert, Joan Eardley, Gwen John, Marino Marini, Andrew Gifford, Peter Brown and many more. More on Christopher James

“The tactile quality of impasto oil paint, its smell, the feel, had me addicted when only twelve years old. Forty years later, the addiction has grown into an obsession. The subject for me, personally is less consequential than the simple matter of applying paint to canvas. As long as the shapes within the picture plane harmonise with one another the addiction can continue.” – Herman Pekel.

Herman Pekel was born in Melbourne in 1956 of Dutch parents. Herman’s first solo art exhibition was held in Melbourne at the age of 17 and was a sell-out success. Herman’s tonal works in oil and watercolour range from city to landscapes, to café and bar interiors, to dynamic industrial scenery. They all demonstrate the best of contemporary impressionism. Herman is a multi-awarded painter: a three-time winner of the coveted Camberwell Gold Medal Art Prize and a winner of the prestigious Alice Bale Award in 1989 and 1993. Herman is a longstanding member of the Twenty Melbourne Painters Society. Herman is a painter with immense talent and insight, and continues to actively exhibit across Australia and internationally. More on Herman Pekel

The Basilica of the Sacred Heart of Paris is a Roman Catholic church and minor basilica, dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. The basilica is located at the summit of the butte Montmartre, the highest point in the city. Sacré-Cœur is a double monument, political and cultural, both a national penance for the defeat of France in the 1871 Franco-Prussian War and the socialist Paris Commune of 1871 crowning its most rebellious neighborhood, and an embodiment of conservative moral order

The Sacré-Cœur Basilica was designed by Paul Abadie. Construction began in 1875 and was finished in 1914. It was consecrated after the end of World War I in 1919. More on the Basilica

Jean Dufy (b Le Havre, France, 1888; d La Boissière, 1964) French Painter. Following his service in the military, from 1910-1912, Jean Dufy relocated to Paris. Inspired by the work of Braque and Picasso, Dufy created watercolors that expressed a heightened understanding of color and light. In the mid-1920s, Jean Dufy became captivated by the music of the time, such as Darius Millaud and Francis Poulenc, and incorporated this interest into his artwork. While depicting orchestral and musical subjects, Dufy later became enchanted by the coast of Northern France and began to create majestic and effecting landscapes. Throughout the 1950s Dufy explored Western Europe and North America, but inevitably returned to his watercolors and oils of Paris. Just two months after the death of his wife, Ismérie, Jean Dufy died in 1964 in La Boissiere. More Jean Dufy
