“La Coupole”

Famous bar, cafe in Paris, Boulevard Montparnasse, founded in 1927. 30 pillars in the big hall were painted by famous artists, among them Chagall and Brancusi. One pillar was painted by Rij Rousseau and still exists today.

In the 30s La Coupole was the favourite bar of writers like Faulkner, Giacometti, Sartre and Becket. Renovated in 1988 La Coupole is an attraction in Paris again.
