Le toit du monde. 2017

le toit du monde. J;Harms - Copie

Le toit du monde. 2017. J.Harms. 41x61cm. Acrylic on paper.

At the end of last year and beginning of this one, I had the great opportunity to work in a prestigious place. The Hôtel de Crillon in Paris. The hotel has been undergoing complete renovation and it was quite a thrill to be part of this massive project. I was part of Christophe Martin‘s team of decorative painters and our job was to paint the suites designed by Karl Lagerfeld. Needless to say the most extraordinary and most expensive suites of the hotel. During breaks, I would sometimes take advantage of the scaffolding just to climb up to the top of the palace. The view there was breathtaking. While painting it, and remembering the view, I couldn’t help but think about Raoul Dufy’s great views of Paris.
