"I went over and sat down at a table with Pascin"

Bulgarian painter Jules Pascin (Julius Mordecai Pincas) was known as the 'Prince of Montparnasse'. Born in 1885, he became a leading figure of modernism, combining aspects of Expressionism and Cubism in his works. His constant partying led to serious alcoholism and depression, and he committed suicide in his Montmartre studio in 1930.
