Yellow vest protests: Paris police sacked, rally bans planned
The French government will replace the Paris police chief and ban rallies in some areas, after Saturday's violent protests.

Prime Minister Edouard Philippe said the authorities would act as soon as "radical groups" were identified in the worst-hit areas.

Last Saturday, rioters smashed shops on Paris's famed Champs-Élysées.

About 10,000 people took part in the protest, a marked increase compared with similar recent rallies.

The "yellow vests" ("gilets jaunes") began weekly protests across France four months ago, initially because of fuel tax rises. The movement escalated into a broader revolt against perceived elitism, for which activists blame President Emmanuel Macron.

The famous Fouquet's restaurant - a haunt of previous French presidents - was badly damaged in Saturday's clashes.

Rioters also vandalised a Boss menswear store and the luxury Longchamp handbag store.

The Paris Ile-de-France Chamber of Commerce says that 91 businesses were hit, nearly all of them suffering serious damage.

Van Gogh - Le Moulin de la Galette, 1886
Van Gogh created a number of paintings titled Le Moulin de la Galette, which was also called Moulin Bloute-Fin. In van Gogh’s first year in Paris he painted rural areas around Montmartre, such as the butte and its windmills. The colors are somber and evoke a sense of his anxiety and loneliness.
the Windmill is still standing in Paris: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moulin_de_la_Galette
The landscape and windmills around Montmartre were the source of inspiration for a number of van Gogh's paintings. The Moulin de la Galette, still standing, is located near the apartment he shared with his brother. Built in 1622, it was originally called Blute-Fin and belonged to the Debray family in the 19th century. Van Gogh met artists such as Toulouse-Lautrec, Paul Signac and Paul Gauguin who inspired him to incorporate Impressionism into his artwork resulting in lighter, more colorful paintings.

Characters from Renoir's Luncheon of the Boating Party
Paul Lhôte, in a straw hat leaning toward Jeanne: Wild adventurer, journalist, writer of short fiction, a close friend of Renoir.

Paul raised his glass. "A toast honoring Auguste's painting-to-come. A toast to la vie moderne, which allows us the freedom to row where we please and eat at the table of life. Let us spend our wealth and time gaily, preserve our liberty, and enjoy life whatever happens. A votre santé!"
Alphonse Fournaise, leaning on the railing in sleeveless maillot: Son of the owner of Maison Fournaise, renter and builder of boats, jouster in the Fêtes Nautiques.

Alphonse gestured with his thumb toward the promenade. "These office clerks in new striped shirts trying to act like oarsmen, strutting around here with an oar on their shoulder--they're only weekend pretenders. They buy their canotier in Paris instead of on the river, wear a cravat by la Coline, and smoke their fancy Chacom pipes from Saint Claude. Take a look at the ones in frock coats tapping silver-tipped canes on the dirt of the promenade. They steal glances at how other men dress. They're afraid of getting their white trousers dirty, afraid of sunburn, afraid of blisters, afraid for their liver. They don't really care about the river. They care about putting on a show."
