An exhibition of fifty works on paper, watercolours and drawings and several oil paintings by the Bulgarian born, Paris based artist, Pascin (1885-1930). 

An incessant draftsman, Pascin captured the essence of daily life in Paris when it was the cultural epicenter in the world in the early twentieth century. Always dressed in black, with a bowler and white scarf, he caught the gestures, attitudes and expressions of his contemporaries amid the noise, the smoke and the multilingual conversations with a line that was quick and forceful and a stroke that was swift but sure.  His scenes convey his humour along with his sadness, sharing with us a rich commentary that depicts the 'Années Folles' - the crazy years â€“ for which Pascin was their â€˜Prince’.
