Walk One - THE LOST GENERATION. MONTPARNASSE AND THE GREAT CAFÉS.

Hits: 6339

Of the flamboyant Café du Dome, one giddy visitor in 1929 wrote “I was uncertain whether it was a place or a state of mind or a disease. It is all three!” In this walk, we follow Ernest Hemingway, Henry Miller, Gertrude Stein, Man Ray and the other writers, painters and party people of les anneés folles, the “crazy years” between the two world wars, who lived the legend of Montparnasse. Sites visited include the former homes of dancer Isadora Duncan, painters Tsuguharu Foujita and Amadeo Modigliani, and Alice Prin, aka Kiki de Montparnasse, and the Dingo Bar, where Scott Fitzgerald and Ernest Hemingway first met.
