Catalogue Note

Vera Rockline arrived in France in 1919, first staying with her mother’s family in the Bourgogne before settling in Paris in 1921. She lived in an apartment at 12 rue de Hambourg, not far from Montmartre and the centre of the quartier russe. As Paul Morand, the Russian-born French author and witty chronicler of Parisian life in the 1920s and 1930s wrote in his Lettres de Paris, 1923 ‘The Russians are everywhere. It’s been months now, they left Berlin – too expensive, Constantinople – too Turkish, Belgrade – too melancholic, and so they are here. At night, Montmartre is entirely Russian.’
