In Montmartre: Picasso, Matisse and the Birth of Modernist Art. Modern Art History, Sue Roe.

In Montmartre: Picasso, Matisse and the Birth of Modernist Art.

New York: Penguin Press, 2014. First Printing of the First US Edition. A Fine tight copy in a Fine dust jacket. Blending exceptional scholarship with graceful prose, Sue Roe paints a remarkable group portrait of the men and women who profoundly changed the arts of painting, sculpture, dance, music, literature, and fashion. She describes the origins of such movements as Fauvism, Cubism, and Futurism, and reconstructs the stories behind immortal paintings by Picasso and Matisse. She shows how daily life in Montmartre—which brought artists together with acrobats and dancers, prostitutes and clowns—provided an essential cauldron for artistic experimentation and for the colorful relationships, friendships, loyalties, and feuds that gave rise to some of the most pathbreaking and lasting works of the twentieth century.
