Lovers of Montmartre, don't miss this lovely museum on Rue Cortot, a stone's throw from Place du Tertre, in the 18th arrondissement of Paris. The Bel Air house, a 17th-century residence surrounded by greenery, was the home of painter Maurice Utrillo and his mother Suzanne Valadon.
Here, visitors can learn all about artistic Montmartre's history from the end of the 19th century to the early 20th century: the district where Parisian society came to be entertained is documented in paintings, drawings and posters by such illustrious artists as Toulouse-Lautrec, Modigliani and Steinlen. From the French Cancan to the famous Chat Noir cabaret's shadow theatre, come and relive the lively Montmartre of yesteryear! On your visit, you can also see the studio-apartment of Suzanne Valadon and Maurice Utrillo, the Demarne Mansion with its temporary exhibitions, and the beautiful Renoir gardens planted with fruit trees, lilacs, rose bushes and hydrangeas, offering a superb view of the Clos Montmartre vineyards and the surrounding area.
