Parisians you should know

Posted on Updated on

Over the years that we have visited Paris, we are impressed by what we do not know
(and how much there is still to discover)

Among the statues, grave sites, metro stations, street-names and paintings, some names sound familiar, but who are these Parisians? And, should we know them?

Here are a few Parisians you should know:

Eugène Delacroix, Father of Romanticism and painter of more than a few LARGE canvases at Le Louvre
