Story Behind the Painting

This Parisian painting of a red cafe is simply titled Café Rouge. It is of Le Lutèce, located on 8 Boulevard Saint-Michel which is on the way from the Latin Quarter to the Musée d'Orsay. Although I realize there is a chain of restaurants named Café Rouge now, there are many small cafes with red awnings in Paris which look beautiful and romantic below the ivory and blueish balconied buildings, almost mirroring the French flag.
