Thomas Van Stein is best known for his plein-air nocturnes.
He paints on-site, sometimes till four in the morning.
From Surreal Bounce (Earthshine Editions, 2009):
A motioning into the very heart of Paris: Ile St-Louis, a village in the middle of the River Seine connected to land by a number of bridges. Paris was born here, protected by a natural moat. Now it is the French capital's quaintest neighborhood, reflected in real estate prices.
Come evening, Van Stein is taken by the sight of nearby Notre Dame, goes and gets it.
