The site is known. Louis Peyrat has planted his easel on the square.

The café-restaurants, La Bohème du Tertre on the left, and Au Clairon des Chasseurs on the right, overlook the rue Norvins

bordered by the church of Saint-Pierre-de-Montmartre built in the twelfth century on a religious site dating from the sixth century.

Behind the church rises the Sacré-Coeur which dominates the district like the rest of Paris

Louis Peyrat gives us here a representative painting of his work. His post-impressionist touch on static forms

and solidly architected brings this grain of poetry that we can still feel today when we walk on the square

at calm hours, and here is perfectly captured
