30 years ago, Keith Ha­ring

pain­ted a co­lour­ful mu­ral on the ex­te­rior of a stair­well at the Ne­cker hos­pi­tal in Pa­ris. “I made this pain­ting to amuse the sick chil­dren in this hos­pi­tal,” the Ame­ri­can street ar­tist wrote in his dia­ry in 1987. Now the to­wer, which had been da­ma­ged over the years and threa­te­ned with de­mo­li­tion, has been gi­ven a fa­ce­lift. The mu­ral was re­vea­led to the pu­blic in its new­ly res­to­red state last month. Long live the to­wer!
