La Closerie des Lilas is a café, restaurant, brasserie and cocktail bar in Paris Montparnasse that has been popular with artists and intellectuals since 1847.
After training in dance, Berlin-born Vera Mercer married the artist Daniel Spoerri and went with him to Paris, where, as part of the artistic avant-garde of the early 1960s, she began photographing artist friends such as Marcel Duchamp, Robert Filliou, Niki de Saint-Phalle and Jean Tinguely. After her divorce, she did reports on artists for international magazines such as Theater Heute. Since 2005, Vera Mercer has been exploring the theme of still life in lush and elaborate productions of fruit, flowers and animals, often with references to art history. Vera Mercer lives and works in Omaha in the US state of Nebraska and in Paris.
