A Fine tight copy in a Fine bright dust jacket. This book re-creates the expatriate artist experience in Paris from 1900 to 1930. What brought this international group of artists and writiers was the promise of personal and artistic freedom and a community of their peers. And at the center of this international colony of creative individuals was Kiki, the Queen of the Quarter. She was an artist's model, entertainer, and lover to many of the residents and visitors to Montparnasse. This encyclopedic biography of a time and place features over 700 illustrations (many of the photographs have not been previously published or at least seen since the 20s) and 12 area maps.
