MARCEL PROUST in art………

CITIES WHERE I HAVE LIVED

Some for years………..others for only a short time.  But I have loved them all.

In London I lived right around the corner from OLYMPIA……the exhibition center famous for the Chelses Flower Show……one of the most famous in the world.  This year the dates are May 22-26.

Eiffel Tower in Paris……also known as the “Iron Lady”.  Have lunch in the tower:

Brooklyn Bridge…..NYC……wanna buy it?  Many a rube has fallen for this scam.

STATUE OF LIBERTY.  Paid for by millions of French school children gave small contributions.  Of course, she was designed by Frederic August Bartholdi.  She arrived in New York from France in 1885………all 350 pieces of her…..n 2225 crates.  Americans collected money to pay for the base on which she stands.

Cute little Citroen car….favorite of Parisians…..small enough to park anywhere……even on the sidewalk.  It is a crazy car to drive…..but fun.

The famous night club……..Moulin Rouge {the Red Windmill}…..in Place Pigalle.

Very baudy floor show….famous for it’s “Can-Can” girls.  Oh LaLa !

Brasserie Lipp……….Paris……..with the same decor since 1926.  A place to drink beer, wine and coffee.  A place to sit and read, write and vitit with the ghosts of past celebrities……Marcel Proust,Chagall Yvs Montand and my favorite…Simone Signoret………..whose loft in SoHo I had a chance to rent….when I moved from Boston to New York.

To be a waiter here…….you have to be proposed by another.

The Book Stalls in Paris…….filled with books, and MY PRINTS that I did years ago.

Sacre Coeur, a magnificent Roman Catholic Basilica…….on top of a hill in Montmartre…..home to many famous artists.Picasso lived here.  I didn’t!

Notre Dame de Paris………..the worlds most stunning Gothic Cathredal.  The hotel where I always stay is just a stone’s throw away.

Hotel De Lutece.  You will love it too.

The building in this photo are actually closer to Union Square.  My loft was near here when I moved back to New York from Germany.

Harry’s Bar.  This one Paris…….but my fave is in Venice.  Tho the one in New York is rather exciting too.

Ah London.  My home for two years…….on the edge of west Kensington….near the palace when Princess Margaret lives.  Tho we never crossed paths.
