I think this photo (below) is the stairs of Rue Foyatier, taken on my first trip to Europe in 1993. And.. my first travel pic here without the sea! Click on the colour pic for the larger version, and you will see a flash of red in the top righthand corner. I'm not sure, but I like to think it is a window box full of red blossoms to brighten the rainy day.
Montmartre is famously known as home to the Le Moulin Rouge and other nightclubs which were the gathering places of bohemian artists in the early 1900's. One being Toulouse-Lautrec who immortalised the district with his famous Posters of Jane Avril and other beauties. Here is a sample of some of his wonderful paintings & posters.
There are many movies to be found depicting Montmartre as their setting. La Vie En Rose, Amelie, Moulin Rouge! If you can find a copy of the 1952 version of Moulin Rouge, this is a fascinating, albeit tragic, account into the life of Toulouse-Lautrec and other artists of his period.
