Paris: Au Lapin Agile

24 March 2016

Paris: Au Lapin Agile: the nightclub in Montmartre frequented by Picasso, Modigliani, Apollinaire, and Utrillo. Five years ago, I tried to draw this view, but it was a freezing cold day in the middle of winter, and I had to give up after a few lines. This time round, it's a bit warmer, so I return to exactly the same bench and start again. Ten minutes later, the white van parks in front of the building, and stays there for the rest of the afternoon. I might have to come back again in another five years...
