This is an original 1925 halftone print of a rather artistic view of a street in Montmartre, a hill in Paris, France. It's name derives from the french mont (mountain) and martre (martyr), because it was on this hill that Saint Denis, patron saint of France, was decapitated. Montmartre is known for the gorgeous white Sacré Coeur Basilica which crowns the hill, as well as all of its nightclubs.

Abel George Warshawsky (1883-1962) was an American expatriate from Cleveland, Ohio, who lived in Paris before Word War I. He was noted for his interesting take on Realism and French Impression, and was acquainted on a personal level with Auguste Renoir. At the beginning of the war, he returned to North America and established himself in California. His work can be seen in quite a few locations, including the Luxembourg Museum in Paris, the Cleveland Institute of Art, and the Minneapolis Art Institute.
