The Portraitist is set in the Paris of the Belle Époque, Art Nouveau, street artists, fashion and excesses.
In this Eden-like atmosphere the mysterious crime of a young and promising portrait painter from Montmartre upsets the entire Parisian society.
Paris, 1896, a late winter day.
The body of a young portrait painter called Antoine Discart is found inside his apartment. The Police begin to investigate but for now they are clueless.
Given the “bohemian” lifestyle of the young portraitist, the suspicions of the Parisian Gendarmerie focus on the premises of Montmartre, on the artists, actors and dancers of the area, but also on more exotic and sinister characters who roam the Paris of the time.
Preliminary investigations yield some results.
On the day of Antoine’s death, several people came to visit him in his atelier and the police suspect them; unfortunately there are no witnesses to the heinous crime besides a neighbor, an elderly woman bedridden by a serious illness that continually repeats a strange and disturbing rhyme…
Now it’s up to you to discover the culprit and restore serenity and tranquillity to the Paris of the late 19th century, shaken and deeply concerned by this murder.
