LA NARCISSE PIGALLE - NITE CLUB BY DAY

Nite Club in daylight  1996--2016 acrylic on canvas




I painted La Narcisse 20 years ago. Recently, I changed
this Pigalle Nite Club from a dark sky to a Nite Club by day.
with just  a thin layer of gesso.
Now with a complete face lift, it seems happier.
It was origonally called La Nouvelle Athèné and was a
famous hang-out for Montmarte artists at the beginning of the last century.
Degas painted his famous "L'Absinthe" there and some of Picasso's blue period 
works were done on the spot.
It burned down to the ground about 12 years ago.
The building behind as well.
It's a Bio Super Market now with a chic apartment building behind.
Same size, but not the same. The bars are still there.
« Les Filles » as well.

LA NARCISSES PIGALLE

"Nite club by day"


i painted this 20 years ago and posted it in 2008 in this blog. I painted it during the day but since it was a Nite Club,
I made the sky a dark blue- black.  No one has ever paid much attention to it. A couple of months ago, I Gessod  (white base for canvas) the dark blue sky
and Bingo it's a hit. Now I am working on the windows.
Once a historic hangout for Montmartre artists at the beginning of the 1900 century
The Club burned down about 10 years ago and now is a bio market.

BIBLIOTEQUE FORNEY - HÔTEL DE SENS

"Biblitèque Forney" 2016



A very special place now and in the 14th century when it was built. It was the hôtel for the privileged ones or rather the arche-bishops. They made it to last.
