Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

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. 16 pages of black-and-white illustrations are featured.

Leslie Joseph, March 6, 2008 (view all comments by Leslie Joseph)
Dan Franck has compiled a book full of interesting stories on perhaps the lesser known figures in the age of Bohemia. Spirited characters and events of the past are brought to life in all their bawdy, and at times, very high-brow glory.
