IN MONTMARTRE: PICASSO, MATISSE AND MODERNISM IN PARIS, 1900-1910. {In Montmartre.} Sue Roe. Penguin Press, Penguin Publishing Group, Penguin Random House LLC, New York, 2015. 397 pp. with 18 ills. (4 col.). 24 x 16 cm. ISBN 9781594204951 In English.
Publisher's description: In Montmartre is a colorful history of the birth of Modernist art as it arose from one of the most astonishing collections of artistic talent ever assembled. It begins in October 1900, as a teenage Pablo Picasso, eager for fame and fortune, first makes his way up the hillside of Paris's famous windmill-topped district. Over the next decade, among the studios, salons, cafes, dance halls, and galleries of Montmartre, the young Spaniard joins the likes of Henri Matisse, Andre Derain, Maurice de Vlaminck, Georges Braque, Amedeo Modigliani, Constantin Brancusi, Gertrude Stein, and many more, in revolutionizing artistic expression. Sue Roe has blended exceptional scholarship with graceful prose to write this 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 movements like Fauvism, Cubism, and Futurism, and reconstructs the stories behind immortal paintings by Picasso and Matisse. Relating the colorful lives and complicated relationships of this dramatic bohemian scene, Roe illuminates the excitement of the moment when these bold experiments in artistic representation and performance began to take shape.
