Low Hai Hong had always been attracted to rivers, having spent much time painting plein-air by the Singapore River when he first started to paint.
In Paris, he had a view of the River Seine right from his window at the studio. He studied the River Seine from his window everyday, observing the light changes at different times of the day and on different days, as autumn slowly turned to winter.
He spent many hours walking along the River Seine too, by the foot paths and across the bridges. There was a lot to take in: the boats on the river, the pedestrians by the paths, the buildings at the background, the historical bridges.
During his trip in Paris, he painted many "portraits" of the River Seine: views from his window, views from different bridges, views at sunrise and sunset, views at autumn and winter.
It was as if the River Seine was this beautiful lady; sometimes cheerful, sometimes graceful, sometimes sentimental, always charming.

The Letter Home
From all his overseas travels throughout the years, Low Hai Hong wrote only one letter home. This was the letter from Paris.
It was a letter for his family, as much as a letter for himself. Been in Paris brought about so many feelings and thoughts that he had to write them down, and share with his closest.
He was bursting with excitement, to see the masters in person at the museums, to indulge in the artistic city of Paris.
Original letter written in Chinese:
Translated in English:
There are many bridges across the River Seine, each revealing the vicissitudes of history and art.
The letter from the Singapore artist in Paris continues with Montmartre at Dusk.
