Summary
  • Explores how the atmosphere and people of Paris lead to the development of modern art at the beginning of the twentieth century and profiles influential artists and writers of the era
  • "Paris is a mythical city, a capital of the arts that has hosted some of the most legendary developments in world culture. Perhaps this reputation has never been so richly deserved as at the beginning of the twentieth century, when Fauvism Cubism, Dadaism, and Surrealism were born in a heady atmosphere of invention and discovery that gave way to the modern sensibility." "In Bohemian Paris, Dan Franck leads us on a vivid and magical tour of the Paris of 1900-1930 and its hotbeds of artistic creation. He introduces erudite and eros-obsessed poet Guillaume Apollinaire; the painter Amedeo Modigliani, generous to a fault even when starving; the opportunistic but brilliant Jean Cocteau; and rival geniuses Henri Matisse and Pablo Picasso, powerful figures who inspired and galvanized their peers even as they divided and obstructed them. We encounter American writers Ernest Hemingway and F. Scott Fitzgerald, whose time in Paris is the stuff of legend, and form-breaking modern writer and salonist nonpareil Gertrude Stein." "Painters and writers, sculptors and poets, they lived like characters in a Balzac story, working, loving, and struggling against a backdrop of extravagant parties and dire poverty. With a novelist's verve and a historian's skill, Dan Franck now paints these lives and this remarkable time, capturing the beauty and vitality distilled from these artists, whose work became the cornerstones of great art."--BOOK JACKET
