In Montmartre

June 18, 2015

20150618-073206.jpg Just arrived at the shops, IN MONTMARTRE Picasso, Matisse and the Birth of Modernist Art by Sue Roe, which I can hardly wait to begin reading. Paris in 1900, oh my. How I would have loved to be a fly on the wall during that incredible time in history to hear the innovative conversations and witness the creation of such groundbreaking artwork. This book puts you there, smack dab in the thick of it all. An account of the social network of artists at a time in Paris that will long be remembered for its significance in the art world. Actually, not just the art world, but the world.
