Painted wall rue Mouffetard


This painted wall on the famous Parisian "Fromagerie Androuet" (cheese shop) represents hunting scenes. The paintings were made in 1929 and use the "sgraffito" technique.

Laurent, I saw that façade in June with Virginia and friends. It is a good thing that painting is up high enough that the usual graffiti "artist" does not spoil it. Nice shot!

Here we go. I"ve got a lot of photos of this but never posted them because I couldn't remember anything about the paintings. Very cool place.
