Modernist interior of the cafe area in El Quatre Gats, with a copy of the 1897 painting, 'Ramon Casas and Pere Romeu on a tandem', by Ramon Casas, on the ground floor of the Casa Marti, a Catalan Modernist building designed by Josep Puig i Cadafalch in 1896, on Carrer Montsio, Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain. The cafe, hostel, cabaret, pub and restaurant was opened by Pere Romeu, 1862-1908, in 1897, inspired by the Le Chat Noir cafe in Paris, and was frequented by many Modernist figures, including Ramon Casas i Carbo, Santiago Rusinol, Miguel Utrillo and Pablo Picasso. The cafe closed in 1903, but was reopened in 1978, with Casa Marti restored in 1991. Picture by Manuel Cohen
