Subject: The most charming neighbood in Paris. Picasso and Matisse spent a lot of time here. It is still home to many great artists in Paris.

You could just about see everything in this scruffy, rustic quarter of Paris, a village unto itself. The lure of its cheap rents drew budding artists in search of studio space, living quarters and ambience. - The National
