Place Jean-Baptiste-Clément

Place Jean-Baptiste-Clément Review

Monsieur Clément, a singer, was "Mayor of Montmartre" during the heady 70 days of the 1871 Commune, when this area actually seceded from Paris. Painter Amedeo Modigliani (1884–1920) had a studio at No. 7, and Picasso lived around the corner at 49 rue Gabrielle. Look for the octagonal tower at the north end of the square. It's all that's left of Montmartre's first water tower, built around 1840 to boost the area's feeble water supply.
