Le Bateau-Lavoir is the name which French painter Max Jacob coined for an area 
   at the top of the steps leading to No. 13 Rue Ravigan, in Montmartre, Paris (Place Emile Goudeau). 
   The first artists started to settle at the Bateau-Lavoir in the 1890s but after 1914 
   (due to the outbreak of World War I) they started to move elsewhere (mainly Montparnasse).

   Maxime Maufra (1863 - 1918) was the first noted artist to take up residence 
   around 1890.
   Kees van Dongen -> and Pablo Picasso took up residence between 1900 and 1904. 
   After 1904 more artists and writers moved in, including Pierre Mac Orlan, 
   Juan Gris, Andre Salmon, Pablo Gargallo, Max Jacob and Pierre Reverdy. 
   Adya van Rees worked and had a studio there.
   It became an unofficial club that included artists Henri Matisse, Georges Braque, 
   Andre Derain, Raoul Dufy, Marie Laurencin, Amedeo Modigliani, Jean-Paul Laurens, 
   Maurice Utrillo, Jacques Lipchitz, Maria Blanchard, Jean Metzinger and Louis Marcoussis); 
   Writers (Guillaume Apollinaire, Alfred Jarry, Jean Cocteau, Gustave Coquiot, 
   Cremnitz [Maurice Chevrier], Paul Fort, Andre Warnod, Raymond Radiguet Gertrude Stein;
   Actors Charles Dullin, Harry Baur, Gaston Modot,
