NOUVELLE ATHÈNES
About 1877 the Impressionist painters dispersed. Starting from this period, certain painters, whose names remain none the less linked with Impressionism, began to frequent the Café de la Nouvelle Athènes, in the Place Pigalle. Later on writers were in the majority; the English novelist George Moore his left a lively first-hand account of these evenings in his Confessions of a Young Man. Manet and Degas could still be met there. Renoir came seldom, Cézanne even less often, and only when brought by his curious friend, the musician Cabaner. Increasingly estranged from their Impressionist friends, as they had always had loose ties with the movement, Manet and Degas eventually became the only clients of the establishment.
