October 2009 - Art around Town
Art can be found in surprising places around Paris. In this month’s Paris Insights, Monique Y. Wells explores four works by Ossip Zadkine (1890-1967), a Russian immigrant who arrived in Paris in 1909, and who was one of the many artists, both foreign and local, who contributed to the artistic movement that became known as the Ecole de Paris.
We had lunch at a small bistrot, Le Jeu de Quilles, where we met Chef Benoît Reix, who serves up delicious Mediterranean-inspired fare. We were so delighted that we returned later during the week for dinner there. Read our account in Le Bon Goût and learn why good food plus congenial banter equal pleasurable dining!
So numerous were Russian artists in Paris in the early part of the 20th century that a number among them founded an academy of art and an association of Russian artists. Read about the efforts of one Russian woman, Marie Vassielieff, who founded a canteen to provide food and companionship for artists of all nationalities in this month’s Paris, Past and Present.
