by [Paris in the 1920s] Birnbaum, Phyllis.
Faber & Faber,
A Fine tight copy in a Fine bright dust jacket. Foujita went to Paris in the 1920s and quickly became a member of the "Paris School" of art that also included Picasso and Modigliani. He was best known for his paintings and drawings of cats and his flamboyant dress and behaviour. But with the approach of the Second World War, he traveled back to Japan where he ultimately painted for the war effort under the militarists who governed Japan. After the war he was scorned for his devotion to the militarists and eventually returned to France where he lived until his death.
