"Paris Cafe Le Bonaparte" by Mona Edulesco.
Original oil painting on canvas 40x60 cm (16x24 in), 2012.
The original has been sold to an art collector from Holyoke, MA - U.S.
Contemporary oil painting representing a street scene from Paris at night, with a cafe in the background. I was inspired for this work by a Parisian cafe named "Le Bonaparte", situated near the Saint-Germain de Pres area.
Paris is the capital of France and the country`s largest city. It is situated on the river Seine, in northern France, at the heart of the Ile-de-France region. The City of Paris, within its limits largely unchanged since 1860 is today one of the world`s leading business and cultural centres, and its influence in politics, education, entertainment, media, fashion, science and the arts all contribute to its status as one of the world`s major global cities. Paris is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world, with over 30 million foreign visitors per year. There are numerous iconic landmarks among its many attractions, along with world-famous institutions and popular parks.
Paris is a city to discover, seeing the sights, visiting the museums, they're part of the experience. But then jump on the metro or a bus and get off at a place you've never heard of, wander through a quartier where French mixes with Arabic or Vietnamese, have lunch in a local restaurant, poke your head into mysterious shops, or just perch on a cafe terrace with a vin blanc and let yourself fall in love with the city.
