Lapin Agile is a famous Montmartre cabaret, at 22 Rue des Saules, 18th arrondissement of Paris, France. It was originally called "Cabaret des Assassins". The cabaret was more than twenty years old when, in 1875, the artist Andre Gill painted the sign that was to suggest its permanent name. It was a picture of a rabbit jumping out of a saucepan, and residents began calling their neighborhood night-club "Le Lapin à Gill," meaning "Gill's rabbit." Over time, the name had evolved into "Cabaret Au Lapin Agile," or the Nimble Rabbit Cabaret. At the turn of the twentieth century, the Lapin Agile was a favorite spot for struggling artists and writers, including Picasso, Modigliani, Apollinaire, and Utrillo. The Lapin Agile is located in the center of the Montmartre district in the 18th arrondissement of Paris, behind and slightly northwest of Sacre Coeur Basilica. Since this was the heart of artistic Paris at the turn of the twentieth century. contineud article, you can enter Lapin Agile and see at Wikipedia site.
Charles Cobelle rendered this "Lapin Agile" with his own style beautifully. This is most attractive his oil painting ever painted and seen.
Charles Cobelle was born in 1902 and emigrated to the United States. By the
time he had emigrated to the United States he had already established
himself as an artistic force in Europe. Once here, Cobelle's paintings were
immediately sought after by galleries and private collectors alike. He
focused on cityscapes which are notable for their movement and playful
coloration. Among his most acclaimed work is his series exploring symphonic
orchestra, horse racing and circus scenes. Cobelle studied formally under
Raoul Dufy and Marc Chagall. Although following in the traditions of these
French impressionists, Cobelle's work is unique stylistically as reflected
in the consistently festive tone which unifies his work. His works have been
displayed in many prominent public places. Example include the mural at
Neiman-Marcus in Dallas, the Mark Hopkins Hotel in San Francisco, The
Wadworth Athenaeum in Hartford, the Administration Building of New York, the
cruise ships of the Holland American Lines, and Haddon-Hall in Atlantic
City. We are very fortunate to present his collections of most impressive
original lithographs. These editions, created in the mid 1980's, represent
his finest works.. His original painting are often auctioned at major
auction house, such as Sotheby's. He passed away in age of 92 in New York,
