Julius Mordecai Pincas, (March 31, 1885 – June 5, 1930) known as Pascin, Jules Pascin, or “The Prince of Montparnasse”, was a Bulgarian painter. Julius Pincas was born in Bulgaria. He adopted his pseudonym after arriving in Paris in December of 1905, part of the great migration of artistic creativity to Paris at the start of the 20th century.
Pascin created thousands of watercolors and sketches, plus drawings and caricatures that he sold to various newspapers and magazines.
During the 1920s, Pascin mostly painted fragile petites filles, prostitutes waiting for clients, or models waiting for the sitting to end.
