Boulevard de Montparnasse

boulevard de montparnasse

Two apartments furnished around Boulevard Montparnasse :
Le Coupole

Metro : Montparnasse-Bienvenue or Vavin. 14th arrondissement.
The sources of Montparnasse’s fame are an interesting mix: its famous brasseries and its famous artists, the two intricately linked. From the beginning the century this quarter has been an attraction for sidewalk amateurs searching out chic establishments. Very quickly, la Coupole, le Dome, la Closerie des Lilas, le Sélect, and la Rotonde became meeting-points for intellectuals, where, between trays of seafood, Parisian artists or men of politics such as Lenin or Trotsky, dreamt of reshaping the world. After the First World War Montparnasse became more urbanised, a majority of the artists from Montmarte descending there, as much to frequent the budding artistic community as to work in the workshops of la Grande-Chaumière. The list of “Montparnos” is long: Picasso, Modigliani, Kisling, Chagall, Léger, Brancusi, Gris, Miro, Diego Rivera, Zadkine and many others mixed with the writers Apollinaire, Max Jacob, Fargue, Breton, Sartre, Miller...  The walls of la Rotunde is wallpapered with designs of artists who thus paid their way, a handful of these works representing a fortune for any amateur art collector today.
