Artist Robert J. Blake set out to make plein air paintings of every bridge crossing the Seine River in Paris, France. Over a two year period he filled over 1500 sketchbook pages, and painted in rain and snow, heat and cold, and clouds and sunshine. Along the way Robert J. Blake met many interesting people and learned some fascinating things about the city.
