LA PASSANTE, PARIS

La Passante, as with le flanneur, walks through Paris without any purpose other than to experience the city. Like Raphaël de Valentin, she finds herself in the presence of the Louvre and on the quai Voltaire. Her wandering leads her to the Place Saint Sulpice, where she sits in the shadow of the church accompanied by the hidden world of Huysman's Là-Bas.
