Notable Galleries: Escape Dali, Hotel Des Arts, Syndicat Initiative Montmarte, Galerie Montmarte

Map

Montmarte was a storied neighborhood in the 18th arrondissement of Paris, where the working artist thrived in the neighborhood during their most prolific periods: Dali, Van Gogh, Picasso, Mondrian, Modigliani, Urtillo, and composer Erik Satie, to name a few. The area houses a gallery devoted to Dali, a museum dedicated to the area-the Musee de Montmarte-in the former house of Urtillo, and numerous other, lower-end galleries. Still home to many working artists and abutting the red light district of Pigalle provides ample opportunity for inspiration and exploration.
