The place: Paris. The year: 1889 and Paul Gauguin has found out his art is too shocking to be included in the Exposition Universelle. Was he deterred? Of course not. Gauguin and his friends decided to put on their own independent exhibition to display their new post-Impressionist style of painting. The venue they chose was Monsieur Volpini’s Café des Artes which was conveniently located on the grounds of the Exposition Universelle.
