Author: Taylor, Michael
Price: Not Available
Description: Philadelphia: Philadelphia Museum of Art, 2011. 31cm., hardcover, 24pp., 17 color plates. Exhibition catalogue. Summary: As a symbol of culture, freedom, and modernity, the city of Paris held a magnetic attraction for artists from around the globe during the early decades of the twentieth century. Many painters and sculptors, as well as poets and writers, settled in a vibrant area of Paris known as Montparnasse, which was sprinkled with art galleries, artists' residences, and cafes. It was here that Alexander Archipenko, Marc Chagall, Moise Kisling, Moise Kogan, Jacques Lipchitz, Louis Marcoussis, Amedeo Modigliani, Chana Orloff, Jules Pascin, Chaim Soutine, and Ossip Zadkine established studios and discovered each other's work. This book and exhibition include works of art by these artists, created in a unique atmosphere of mutual encouragement and support in Paris during the early decades of the twentieth century. Interwoven throughout is the story of Chagall's formative years in the French capital during the 1910s, his return to Russia during World War I and the rise of the Russian Revolution, and the artist's triumphant return to Paris in the 1920s as a leading figure of the city's thriving avant-garde.
