At The Cafe De La Rotonde Paris
Painting - Pastel On Sandpaper
ORIGINAL PASTEL ON SANDPAPER / 9,5 x 12,5 inches / 2013

The Cafe de la Rotonde is a famous cafe in the Montparnasse Quarter of Paris, France. Located on the Carrefour Vavin, at the corner of Boulevard du Montparnasse and Boulevard Raspail, it was founded byVictor Libion in 1911. Along with Le Dome and La Coupole it was renowned as an intellectual gathering place for notable artists and writers during the interwar period.
Montparnasse is most noted as the spot where painters, sculptors, writers, poets and composers flocked: they arrived from many places including Europe, Russia, the Ukraine, the United States, Canada, Mexico, Japan, Central and South America. Creativity was clearly embraced and each time a new artist arrived they were welcomed, despite politics or religion. The list of individuals who congregated in Montparnasse has been a veritable who's who since the cafe opened its doors. Among the famous are Pablo Picasso, Ernest Hemingway, Man Ray, Max Ernst, Henri Rousseau, Henry Miller, Gertrude Stein, Samuel Beckett, Fernand Leger, Henri Matisse, Marc Chagall, Edgar Degas, Diego Rivera and Marcel Duchamp. One could say that this is where the art of meeting and interacting was born and refined.
