This postcard, a reproduction of an oil painting by André Renoux (1939-2002), has thwarted time much better than the actual business. Le Chat Noir is still located in the Montmarte district at 57, rue du Chevalier de la Barre, in Paris. According to Google street view, it's showing its age. Renoux has preserved it here in its glory days! This is one of the harder-to-find cards in Renoux Paris shop front scenes. I can't date Renoux postcards precisely but from my online research, comparing the dates of Renoux's original oil paintings and dates on the few used postcards I've come across, I believe his cards are from the 1980s to the 1990s. In near mint unused vintage condition. About 5.75 by 4-1/8 inches.
André Renoux (1939-2002) is a French painter considered the "father" of the Paris School of Urban Realism. I have been offering his postcards in lots of 4-5, but decided to try something different with my latest arrivals from across the Atlantic. I'm offering these individually so you can mix and match to your own taste, whether you want to create a particular theme, color, all horizontal or all vertical, whatever. As you mix and match, remember with a minimum $50 order, you'll get a $10 discount, and shipping within the US is $4.25 whether you buy one or 10, so collect away! Details on my shop home page on how to handle check out so I can change the price before you pay to give you your savings.
You may have seen Renoux's Paris shop scenes on Williams Sonoma plates. His original limited-edition serigraphs sell anywhere from $600 to $2,000. Although these postcards are not my usual antique fare, I wanted to offer these because Renoux's Paris shop scenes are difficult for a person in the United States to access and they are highly collectible.
