Cambridge Society of Paris's Third Glory Days of Paris - Guided walk in Montparnasse

28 Sep 2019 14:15 | Anonymous


YOU ARE WARMLY INVITED TO THE GUIDED WALK ASSOCIATED WITH THE THIRD GLORY DAYS OF PARIS LECTURE

A celebration of the exuberant and heady Années Folles when Paris was at the epicentre of the intellectual and artistic world.

“The Artists and Writers of the 1920s and ’30s”

Unfortunately, because of ill health on the part of our Lecturer, Mary McAuliffe, the third lecture in the Glory Days of Paris series has had to be postponed. However, the accompanying guided walk will still take place at:

14h15 on Saturday 28th September

Meeting point: 1 rue Campagne Première

End of walk: La Coupole, Bvd. Montparnasse (approx 16h30)

Price: €17 per person

There will be either tea or an aperitif at La Coupole at the end of the walk, although the cost of this is not included in the price.

“Paris is a feast” wrote Hemmingway. This guided walk, full of interesting and amusing anecdotes, will illustrate the history of Les Années Folles in Montparnasse, an area of Paris already well known for its festivity, its Guingettes and the Rue de la Gaïté. Maud Hacker, our guide, will reveal secrets of the wild evenings that took place enlivened by the rhythms of jazz and the dance of Josephine Baker. We will also discover the painters' studios of Picasso, Modigliani, Foujita, Man Ray… and their muse Kiki of Montparnasse. Hidden courtyards and gardens. The famous cafés around Rue Vavin: Le Dôme, La Rotonde, Le Select and La Coupole. And there we shall stop for a cup of tea or, 1920s style, an aperitif.

Hope to see you on Saturday 28th September.
