ART AND PAINTING

The seine & loing, an artist's muse

Many artists have drawn inspiration from the local area, such as Voltaire and Balzac at the Château de Saint Ange in Villecerf,
Guy de Maupassant in Montigny-sur-Loing, Octave Mirbeau in Veneux-Nadon, Sarah Bernhardt in Veneux-les-Sablons and Rosa Bonheur in Thomery

Alfred Sisley, the famous impressionist painter, said at the end of his life that the atmosphere and light of Seine et Loing allowed him to establish his art.
Today, this creative spirit lives on in our towns and villages. It is tangible in the local area’s many art galleries, creative spaces, exhibition venues and festivals.
