The significance of artistic places derives from links with the life of an artist or by association with the landscapes or scenes depicted in an artist's work. Particular representations of landscape in paintings have some qualities of heritage in themselves. Artistic places are allowed to be marketed as tourist attractions. The ways in which an artistic place is consumed by visitors is questioned. Four towns in France are studied (Auvers-sur-Oise, Pont-Aven, Honfleur, Etretat)
