Cafe de Flore
From Jean Paul Sartre and Simone de Beauvoir to Johnny Depp and Robert de Niro, one small Parisian eatery has attracted the presence of artists, writers, thinkers, and creators for centuries. Today, contemporary oil painter Michael Flohr joins the ranks of those who have found a home amongst the historical environs of Café de Flore and memorializes its presence in an oil painting as only he can render.
Since the late 19th century, Café de Flore has resided on the Boulevard Saint-Germain in Paris. A corner café with its Art Deco style interior, Flore offers its visitors a view into the historically significant café lifestyle for which Paris is known. It is an archetypal landmark of the French capitol, signifying freedom of expression and creation.
