"From humble origins, Kiki de Montparnasse became the muse of Man Ray, Kisling, Foujita, Calder, and other important artists living in Paris in the Roaring Twenties. Many revolutionary writers, artists, and personalities flourished on the bohemian Left Bank, each one inventing their own iconic style, and Kiki, the Queen of Montparnasse, was the thread connecting them. Not only an artist's model, Kiki was also a cabaret performer, actress, and an artist in her own right with two successful exhibitions. Every image tells a fascinating story in this lavishly illustrated, oversize luxury slipcase volume, revealing the artistic, social, and historical events that created and surrounded the incredible artistic flowering of the now mythical Montparnasse neighborhood"--Publisher's web site

Matisse by Walter Guadagnini( Book )

1 edition published in 1993 in French and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Henri Matisse's adventures in color and light constitute a landmark in the history of modern art. From his apprenticeship in the studio of Gustave Moreau to the paper cut-outs of the 1950s, the stages of this journey represent a triumph of artistic research and resolution, as well as a shining example of pictorial quality and theoretical and moral integrity." "The more than 300 reproductions of this volume, and the accompanying texts, provide a fascinating survey of a complex life which crossed the paths of other legendary figures of the age. These figures include painters such as Picasso, Renoir, Derain, Braque and Bonnard; writers like Apollinaire, Aragon and Reverdy; and collectors such as Stein, Shchukin and Barnes, all combining to create an artistic climate that for sheer energy and fervor was unequalled in our century. In this context, the figure of Matisse is impressive all the more for its versatility. His lucid theories on poetics to his astonishing experiments in the fields of design, engraving and sculpture, all played a key role in his overall vision of the artistic process.
