Portrait Of Hemingway in Paris
Shortly after arriving in Paris, Ernest met Henry Strater, another American expat with literary interests.
Strater was interested in boxing and tennis as was Hemingway. He was a Princeton graduate and he had already become a friend of F. Scott Fitzgeralds. So, another connection to the "Lost Generation."
It was only natural that Hemingway and Strater should become friends.
Strater painted this portrait in 1922, although Strater claims in was 1923. Hemingway didn't like it very much.
