Matisse painted many views of Notre-Dame from his studio at 19 Quai Saint-Michel. Ragnar Hoppe reported Matisse saying in 1919 that "this little apartment here is inconvenient, but I've lived here for many years, I've grown attached to it, and I can't be without the view." (Jack Flam: Matisse on Art (Berkeley: University of California Press, 1995), p. 74.)
