It developed as a fusion of different German dialects with adstrats of Hebrew, Aramaic and Slavic vocabulary and some traces of vocabulary from the Romance languages. Yiddish orthography uses the Hebrew alphabet. The language originated in the Ashkenazi culture that developed from about the 10th century in the Rhineland and then spread to Central and Eastern Europe and eventually to other continents. In the earliest surviving references to it, the language is called. = “language of Ashkenaz” and. The contemporary name for the language otherwise spoken in the region of origin, now called Middle High German. In common usage, the language is called. Literally “mother tongue”, distinguishing it from Biblical Hebrew and Aramaic, which are collectively termed. The term “Yiddish” did not become the most frequently used designation in the literature of the language until the 18th century. For a significant portion of its history, Yiddish was the primary spoken language of the Ashkenazi Jews and once spanned a broad dialect continuum from Western Yiddish to three major groups within Eastern Yiddish: Litvish, Poylish and Ukrainish. Eastern and Western Yiddish are most markedly distinguished by the extensive inclusion of words of Slavic origin in the former. Western Yiddish has few remaining speakers but the Eastern dialects remain in wide use. Yiddish is written and spoken in many Orthodox Jewish communities around the world, although there are also a number of Orthodox Jews who do not know Yiddish. It is a home language in most Hasidic communities, where it is the first language learned in childhood, used in schools and in many social settings. Yiddish is also the academic language of the study of the Talmud according to the tradition of the Lithuanian yeshivas. Yiddish is also used in the adjectival sense to designate attributes of Ashkenazic Jewish culture (for example, Yiddish cooking and Yiddish music) School of Paris (French: École de Paris) refers to the French and émigré artists who worked in Paris in the first half of the 20th century. Sonia Delaunay, Rythme, 1938 The School of Paris was not a single art movement or institution, but refers to the importance of Paris as a center of Western art in the early decades of the 20th century. Between 1900 and 1940 the city drew artists from all over the world and became a centre for artistic activity. School of Paris was used to describe this loose community, particularly of non-French artists, centered in the cafes, salons and shared workspaces and galleries of Montparnasse.  Before World War I the name was also applied to artists involved in the many collaborations and overlapping new art movements, between post-Impressionists and pointillism and Orphism, Fauvism and Cubism. In that period the artistic ferment took place in Montmartre and the well-established art scene there. But Picasso moved away, the war scattered almost everyone, by the 1920s Montparnasse become a center of the avant-garde. After World War II the name was applied to another different group of abstract artists.

The group included artists like Pablo Picasso, Marc Chagall, Amedeo Modigliani and Piet Mondrian. Associated French artists included Pierre Bonnard, Henri Matisse, Jean Metzinger and Albert Gleizes. Picasso and Matisse have been described as the twin leaders (chefs décole) of the school before the war.  After World War I André Warnod, Les Berceaux de la jeune peinture (1925). Cover illustration by Amedeo Modigliani The term “School of Paris” was used in 1925 by André Warnod (fr) to refer to the many foreign-born artists who had migrated to Paris.  The term soon gained currency, often as a derogatory label by critics who saw the foreign artistsmany of whom were Jewishas a threat to the purity of French art.  Art critic Louis Vauxcelles, noted for coining the terms “Fauvism” and “Cubism”, also meant disparagingly, called immigrant artists unwashed “Slavs disguised as representatives of French art”.  School of Paris artists were progressively marginalized. Beginning in 1935 art publications no longer wrote about Chagall, just magazines for Jewish audiences, and by June 1940 when the Vichy government took power, School of Paris artists could no longer exhibit in Paris at all.  The artists working in Paris between World War I and World War II experimented with various styles including Cubism, Orphism, Surrealism and Dada. Foreign and French artists working in Paris included Jean Arp, Joan Miró, Constantin Brâncui, Raoul Dufy, Tsuguharu Foujita, artists from Belarus like Michel Kikoine, Pinchus Kremegne, and Jacques Lipchitz, the Polish artist Marek Szwarc and others such as Russian-born prince Alexis Arapoff.  A significant subset, the Jewish artists, came to be known as the Jewish School of Paris or the School of Montparnasse.  The core members were almost all Jews, and the resentment expressed toward them by French critics in the 1930s was unquestionably fueled by anti-Semitism.  One account points to the 1924 Salon des Indépendants, which decided to separate the works of French-born artists from those by immigrants; in response critic Roger Allard (fr) referred to them as the School of Paris.  Jewish members of the group included Emmanuel Mané-Katz, Chaim Soutine, Adolphe Féder, Chagall, Moïse Kisling, Maxa Nordau and Shimshon Holzman.  The artists of the Jewish School of Paris were stylistically diverse. Some, like Louis Marcoussis, worked in a cubist style, but most tended toward expression of mood rather than an emphasis on formal structure.  Their paintings often feature thickly brushed or troweled impasto. The Musée d’Art et d’Histoire du Judaïsme has works from School of Paris artists including Pascin, Kikoine, Soutine, Orloff and Lipschitz.  After World War II In the aftermath of the war, “nationalistic and anti-Semitic attitudes were discredited, and the term took on a more general use denoting both foreign and French artists in Paris”.  But although the “Jewish problem” trope continued to surface in public discourse, art critics ceased making ethnic distinctions in using the term. While in the early 20th century French art critics contrasted The School of Paris and the École de France, after World War II the question was School of Paris vs School of New York.  Post-World War II (Après-guerre), the term “School of Paris” often referred to tachisme, and lyrical abstraction, a European parallel to American Abstract Expressionism. These artists are also related to CoBrA.  Important proponents were Jean Dubuffet, Zoran Mui, Pierre Soulages, Nicolas de Staël, Hans Hartung, Serge Poliakoff, Bram van Velde, Georges Mathieu, Jean Messagier, Jean-Michel Coulon among others. Many of their exhibitions took place at the Galerie de France in Paris, and then at the Salon de Mai. Selected artists Constantin Brâncui, Romanian-born sculptor, considered a pioneer of modernism,  arrived in Paris in 1904 Marc Chagall lived in Paris from 1910 to 1914 then again after his exile from the Soviet Union in 1923; Jewish; was arrested in Marseilles by the Vichy government but escaped to the US with help from Alfred H. Soutine, a friend of Modigliani, arrived in Paris in 1913 and lived at La Ruche Max Weber, born in Russia, arrived in Paris in 1905 Ossip Zadkine,  born in Belarus and lived at La Ruche Faïbich-Schraga Zarfin (fr), born in Belarus, friend of Soutine Alexandre Zinoview (fr) born in 1889 in Russia, died in France in 1977.

It was coined to describe the rich social, artistic, and cultural collaborations of the period.  The same period is also referred to as the Roaring Twenties or the Jazz Age in the United States.

Art nouveau extravagance began to evolve into Art Deco geometry after the First World War. André Gide, who founded the Nouvelle Revue Française literary review in 1908, influenced Jean-Paul Sartre and Albert Camus. Tristan Tzara’s 1918 Dada manifesto and the resulting Dada movement were very much a product of the interbellum: “Dadaists both embraced and critiqued modernity, imbuing their works with references to the technologies, newspapers, films, and advertisements that increasingly defined contemporary life”.  All these served as the precursors for the Années folles. Café society Main article: Café society This section needs additional citations for verification.

(December 2016) (Learn how and when to remove this template message) The Closerie des Lilas in 1909. Cafés around Paris became places where artists, writers, and others gathered. On the Rive Gauche (left bank) the scene centered around cafés in Montparnasse while on the Rive Droite (right bank), the Montmartre area. Left bank The Années folles in Montparnasse featured a thriving art and literary scene centered on cafés such as Brasserie La Coupole (fr), Le Dôme Café, Café de la Rotonde, and La Closerie des Lilas (fr) as well as salons like Gertrude Stein’s in the rue de Fleurus (fr). The Rive Gauche, or left bank, of the Seine in Paris, was and is primarily concerned with the arts and the sciences.  Many artists settled there and frequented cabarets like Le Boeuf sur le Toit and the large brasseries in Montparnasse. American writers of the Lost Generation, like F. Scott Fitzgerald and Ernest Hemingway, met and mingled in Paris with exiles from dictatorships in Spain and Yugoslavia. The painters of the School of Paris for example included among others Chaim Soutine, Amedeo Modigliani and Marc Chagall, Lithuanian, Italian, and Russian, respectively. Later the American Henry Miller, like many other foreigners, gravitated to the rue Vavin (fr) and Boulevard Raspail. Montparnasse was, he said, “the navel of the world”.  Gertrude Stein also lived in Montparnasse during this period. Right bank Montmartre was a major center of Paris nightlife and had been famous for its cafés and dance halls since the 1890s. Trumpeter Arthur Briggs played at L’Abbaye and transvestites frequented La Petite Chaumière.  After World War I, the artists who had inhabited the guinguettes and cabarets of Montmartre, invented post-Impressionism during the Belle Époque. In 1926, the facade of the Folies Bergère building was redone in Art Deco style by the artist Maurice Pico (fr), adding it to the many Parisian theatres of the period in this architectural style.  Art Surrealism The Elephant Celebes, Max Ernst 1921. Surrealism came to the forefront in the 1920s cultural scene, bringing new forms of expression to poetry with authors like André Breton, whose Surrealist Manifesto appeared in 1924, Louis Aragon, Paul Éluard, and Robert Desnos. Émigré artists had created Post-Impressionism, Cubism, and Fauvism in Paris before World War I, and included Pablo Picasso, Marc Chagall, Amedeo Modigliani, and Piet Mondrian, along with French artists Pierre Bonnard, Henri Matisse, Jean Metzinger, and Albert Gleizes. Surrealists also included artists like Max Ernst, Joan Miró, Salvador Dalí, and Francis Picabia, sculptors like Jean Arp, Germaine Richier and even early film-makers, like Luis Buñuel and René Clair. Avant-garde The avant-garde movement saw many of its members adhere to the French Communist Party and share their desire to break from the bourgeoisie. Jean Cocteau, while he denied belonging to the surrealists, was unquestionably avant-garde and collaborated with many of its members.
