The Eiffel Tower Poster

No more than a couple of years ago, I sent my niece on a quest in Europe:  The Eiffel Tower Poster Mission.

The Eiffel Tower PosterShe was already, under a foreign student program, living  in Paris and, since she is a very good photographer, I wanted her to help me find the perfect spot for some pictures I would later use as inspiration and maybe an underpainting layer for a digital painting .

She is also a pretty good writer and I asked her if she could write some very short essays about her Eiffel landmark adventures and what she felt about them.

I had been to Paris long before that. It was in the late 60’s and the early 70’s while on trips with my mother. Once again, mom was a guide for art history tourism. We traveled around Paris and its outskirts quite a bit during those 2 trips.

To me, the Eiffel Tower has always felt like a huge steel Christmas tree. It also seemed like a topsail for alien pirates.

Unfortunately, I felt memories of the Eiffel Tower were very polluted by images I had seen on pictures and in movies and I was not sure of being able to give an intimate interpretation of a place I actually had been to but did not remember well.

I came up with this crazy idea and told my niece what my memory impressions were… What I felt about being there with my late mother, etc…. Some sort of virtual psychotherapy brainstorming to help her see the place through my mind… or whatever…

I used all the materials she sent me to create the image you see here.

The Tower

Receiving over 7 million visitors day, The Eiffel Tower is a wrought iron lattice tower on the Champ de Mars in Paris, France.

Constructed in 1889 as the entrance to the 1889 World’s Fair, It is named after the engineer Gustave Eiffel, owner of the company that designed and built it.

Maybe the most recognizable structure in the world., it was initially criticized by some of France’s leading artists and intellectuals for its design, but has become a cultural world landmark ever since.

    Hi Caito,

    My wife and I visited Paris 20 years ago this summer. The Eiffel Tower is even more beautiful in person. What an amazing piece of architecture and history. I hope to return to Paris and see the Eiffel Tower again. Did you get a chance to go all the way to the top of the Eiffel Tower? We did and what a view. We have photos but I need to back and take HD images.

    I just read your post titled, “CJunqueira Art.” The picture of the Eiffel Tower and your memories that you share were very inspiring to me. You are blessed to have been able to visit Paris when you were young. I have never travelled abroad. Paris France is always depicted as an exotic place where people go to fall in love. You have chosen a great niche!
    Thank you,

    When I look at the poster it brings back memories of the Eiffel Tower at night. We visited several times and my favorite time to see it was at night when it was glowing in the night. I love this print. I think he did an incredible job creating a memorable print. I will stay and look around the other pages to see the other prints. Thank you.
