Champs Elysees Art Print, PARIS
Art print from the Paris Series. The Elysian Fields
The name Champs Elysées comes from Greek mythology, where it designated the abode of the dead reserved for virtuous souls, the equivalent of the Christian paradise. To access it they had to drink from the River Lethe, which would make them forget their time in hell.
The Champs-Elysées are part of the historical axis of Paris, which extends through the Tuileries Garden until reaching the Louvre Museum.
On the opposite side of the Arc de Triomphe, Avenue de la Grand Armada and Avenue Charles de Gaulle extend the Champs-Elysées. In the nineties, the Great Arch was built on this same axis, in the modern neighborhood of La Défense, one of the most important financial centers in the European Union along with Frankfurt am Main.
