Parisian cafés serve as a center of social and culinary life in Paris. They have been around since the 17th century, and serve as the meeting place, neighborhood hub, conversation matrix, rendez-vous spot, and networking source, a place to relax or to refuel – the social and political pulse of the city. Parisian cafés show the Parisian way of sitting undisturbed for a couple of hours, watching things happening and people going by.

Typical Paris cafés are not coffee shops. They generally come with a complete kitchen offering a restaurant menu with meals for any time of the day, a full bar and even a wine selection. More on Parisian cafés 

Michael Rozenvain was born in Kiev, in the Ukraine in 1963. He currently lives in Toronto. After having studied at the art school of Kiev, he pursued his artistic studies at the Academy of Applied Arts in Lvov. Rozenvain has participated in many collective and solo exhibitions. Rozenvain is also very active in the creation of fresco paintings as well as monumental works of art for prestigious hotels as well as large libraries. Since 2006, Rozenvain resides in Canada and his studio is located in Toronto.

Themes like the Mediterranean, cobblestone streets, French bistros, cafes, and orchestras are Rozenvain’ s favourites subjects. His colour scheme is rich and sultry, inviting the onlooker to hop into the painting for either a glass of wine or an espresso. Rozenvain applies many layers of paint, thus creating the illusion of depth through his highly textured canvas. His sense of composition and his agile paintbrush strokes are all elements that distinguish this artist and have made him famous worldwide. More on Michael Rozenvain

I search Art History for Beautiful works that may, or may not, have a secondary or unexpected story to tell. I then write short summaries that grow from my research. Art work is so much more when its secrets are exposed
