Jules-Émile Élisée Maclet and Others
Paris Paintings

An artist's view of Saint Pierre and Sacré-Cœur atop Montmartre
and other Paris locations

Jules-Émile Élisée Maclet is famous for his Paris street scenes, much in the tradition that Utrillo would soon follow. Indeed, born in Lihons-en-Santerre, Picardie (April 12, 1881), the artist began his career while still a choirboy. He moved to Montmartre in 1906, after his mother's death, where he began painting the Montmartre landscape, anticipating the themes that Utrillo would eventually depict, as well as other colorful scenes of the city (and elsewhere in France and Italy). He would have had more works extant today, but he was institutionalized much of the last 30 years of his life.

Many more paintings of this place named for the mountain of the martyrs, overlooking Paris at http://france.jeditoo.com/IleDeFrance/Paris/18eme/Sacre_Coeur.htm L'église Saint Pierre (http://web.archive.org/web/20130330010959/http://www.genebase.com/node/F276077) sits on the spot where Saint Denis (patron saint of Paris) lost his head, which he picked up and carried north to the place where his Basillica stands today.
