Paris Montparnasse: The Heyday of Modern Art 1910-1940.
by [Paris in the 1920s] Bougault, Valerie.
A Fine tight copy in a Fine bright Paperback binding. There was no hardcover edition of this book. On Paris's Left Bank, the small bohemian district of Montparnasse was a hotbed of creative activity in the early part of the 20th century, attracting artists and writers from all over the world. Almost every artist featured in the annals of modern painting passed through Montparnasse during the years between the two World Wars. Severini, the cofounder of futurism, came from Italy; Foujita came from Japan. In black-and-white photos you'll also find Rousseau, Matisse, Chagall, Modigliani, Soutine, Picasso, Man Ray, Giacometti, and their apartments, studios, and favorite cafés. Vintage photographs of Montparnasse, juxtaposed with the more than 150 color illustrations of the artworks created, evokes the sense of nostalgia that still permeates the area.
