Le Moulin de la Galette

Recommendation by Lemi

Pierre-Auguste Renoir, one of the artists who saw the beginning of Impressionism, expressed the beauty of a bustling party at Le Moulin de Galette in Paris. He painted a sea of faces in motion with loose brush strokes and lively color, aptly named “Bal du Moulin de la Galette” (Dance at Le Moulin de Galette). It was so popular that Pablo Picasso, Vincent Van Gogh, and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec were also moved to paint their own scenes. The Moulin de Galette has survived as a restaurant, with its iconic wooden windmill jutting out on the hilly street corner. Bask in the spot’s nostalgic charm, while enjoying a plate of modern French cuisine.
