Iconic Parisian café, with an apron waiter at the corner of rue Saint-Dominique and rue de la Tour Maubourg, in the heart of the 7th arrondissement, between the Esplanade des Invalides and the Champ de Mars. At the end of the street, the Eiffel Tower stands in a unique perspective. The 7th arrondissement is a timeless district, Mariotti draws it with almost documentary precision, but has it crossed by an elegant woman, all dressed in yellow, in black gloves, an eternal silhouette à la Audrey Hepburn.
The prints 30x40 cm are presented under master keys. The dimensions indicated include the creation as well as the master key.
