Whistler frequented it in the 1890s - indeed he used their notepaper (headed CAFÉ CORAZZA / RESTAURANT DOUIX / 12, GALERIE MONTPENSIER / PALAIS-ROYAL / PARIS) when writing to William Heinemann (1863-1920) and William Webb (b. ca 1851) in 1894. 7 In a later letter he mentioned to Miss Birnie Philip, 'the little fat waiter with side whiskers who used to wait upon us at the corner table of the Cafe Corrazza'. 8
