La Closerie des Lilas is a café, restaurant, brasserie and cocktail bar in Paris Montparnasse dating back to 1847 that was and is popular with artists and intellectuals.


Vera Mercer, born in Berlin, married the artist Daniel Spoerri after her dance education and went with him to Paris, where she began to photograph befreinded artists such as Marcel Duchamp, Robert Filliou, Niki de Saint-Phalle and Jean Tinguely as part of the artistic avant-garde of the early 1960s. After her divorce, she shot reports on artists for international magazines such as Theater Heute. Since 2005, Vera Mercer has been dealing with the theme of still life in lavish and elaborate staging of fruits, flowers, and animals, often with references to art history. Vera Mercer lives and works in Omaha, Nebraska and Paris.
