Scenes from the Portes Ouvertes des Ateliers d’Artistes de Belleville

Belleville Facades

Yesterday I went up to Belleville to check out the first day of the annual Portes Ouvertes. It’s not really polite to take photos of the artworks, but the neighborhood is surprisingly photogenic. You have until Monday to go visit some of the most interesting artist studios in Paris (over 250), and maybe even pick up an art work of your own…

I love the dog photo, but what’s most fun is how you can see the Eiffel and Montparnasse Towers in the background…

Belleville is at its liveliest during the Portes Ouvertes. Do come and visit even if you’re not looking to buy any artworks!

  • Love reading your blog. Have added it to my blogroll – hope you don't mind. Look forward to seeing you at 'I Know A Little Place: Paris'.

  • I wouldn't say I'm your big fan, but I have following you since 2 years ago. For me the point is to know a different city, different from other guide books. I love your photos, they are lovely~~~~~
