Picasso, Modigliani, Matisse, and the Birth of Modern ArtBook - 2001
A legendary capital of the arts, Paris hosted some of the most legendary developments in world culture--particularly at the beginning of the twentieth century, with the flowering of fauvism, cubism, dadaism, and surrealism. In Bohemian Paris, Dan Franck leads us on a vivid and magical tour of the Paris of 1900-1930, a hotbed of artistic creation where we encounter Apollinaire, Modigliani, Cocteau, Matisse, Picasso, Hemingway, and Fitzgerald, working, loving, and struggling to stay afloat. Kirkus Reviews praised it as "an impressive synthesis of historical detail and novelistic atmosphere.... Franck... Pungently evokes the crushing poverty, extravagant partying, fierce loving, and contentious wrangling that epitomize the bohemian lifestyle."
