In Montreal, for my birthday, we took a stroll after dinner through the flaneur’s paradise on Rue Prince Arthur, a pedestrian mall between Avenue Laval and Boulevard Saint-Laurent. Ms. Modigliani agreed to sit for her portrait by street artist Marie-claude Journault. Earlier in the evening, at Maestro S.V.P., Ms. M sat in the chair where Leonard Cohen sat when he autographed the oyster shell that hangs in his honor on the restaurant’s wall of fame.
