During the middle ages Rouen — with 40,000 residents — was France's second largest city. Only Paris was bigger. In the 12th century, half of today's France was ruled by England.

And because this was an important English base during the Hundred Years' War, this was the place where Joan of Arc was burned. Today, Rouen mixes dazzling Gothic architecture and contemporary bustle beautifully. It's a thriving port with a pedestrian-friendly old town and a grand cathedral standing as a reminder of the town's historic importance.

Exposition à l'abbaye de Montivilliers Mars 2015 http://www.vandi-artiste-peintre.com/ Video : Grégory Constantin http://gregory-constantin.fr/ English text : When you have been painting for 50 years, that is something to celebrate, and that is exactly what Vandi did at the start of 2015 by exhibiting part of his paintings in the abbey of Montivilliers.
