Juan Gris
Christopher Green
0300053746
January 1993
Hardcover
·
 
From Library Journal
Juan Gris, the cubist painter whose career ended with early death in 1927, has been considered the most rational of the cubists. This volume, coinciding with a recent European exhibition of Gris's work, reexamines earlier scholarship to propose a view of him as a more complex and varied artistic personality. Green's substantial essays are written at a level suitable for readers already familiar with the historical period and relevant critical theory. There are also essays by Karin von Maur on Gris's relation to music and theater and by Christian Derouet on Gris's letters. A nice selection of color and black-and-white reproductions completes the volume. Recommended for research collections or other large collections with an interest in the field.- Kathryn W.

Art in France: 1900-1940 (Pelican History of Art Series)
Christopher Green
0300099088
March 2003
Textbook Paperback
·
 
From Library Journal
Accessible and solid scholarship has been the hallmark of the revived "Pelican History of Art" series, and Green (history of art, Courtauld Inst., London; Juan Gris, LJ 5/1/93), an undisputed expert in the field, continues the tradition with this latest installment. The intense, far-reaching text covers four tumultuous decades, from the Exposition Universelle of 1900 to the German invasion of France in World War II. Discussions of major artists and the avant-garde's many -isms and schisms are balanced by sections on dealers, collectors, lesser-known women artists, critics, art institutions, foreign influences, and the period's volatile social and political history. The documentation and select bibliography are superb. The reproductions are numerous but often small and in black and white only. There is much to learn...

The Harlequin Years: Music in Paris 1917-1929
Roger Nichols
0520237366
January 2003
Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Nichols (The Life of Debussy; Satie Remembered) draws a detailed picture of the vibrant, often risque Parisian musical culture that flowered after the near debacle of WWI. The author eschews a chronological approach in favor of devoting individual chapters to the different musical institutions: the various orchestra series that had long been a major feature of Parisian musical life and played such an important role in introducing Wagner to French audiences; the opera houses and ballet companies; and the salons and their hostesses, like the Singer sewing machine heiress the princesse de Polignac. Nichols gives overdue attention to the Ballets Suedois, which is usually overshadowed by Diaghilev's Ballets Russes. Its founder, Rolf de Mare, provided opportunities for many young composers during the 1920s and...


Sorcerer's Apprentice: Picasso, Provence, and Douglas Cooper

Book Review
Two quotations from Francis Bacon bookend this curious, exasperatedly affectionate memoir by John Richardson, distinguished art historian and 1991 Whitbread Award-winning biographer of Picasso: the prophetic "she'll try to lure you to bed, and then she'll turn on you. She always does," finds its uncanny conclusion in "Didn't I warn you she was a thoroughly treacherous woman?" The sorcerer (art collector Douglas Cooper) and his apprentice (Richardson) lived for 10 years in the grandiose "folly" Château de Castille in Provence, where they entertained a circle that included Pablo Picasso, Jean Cocteau, Angus Wilson, Tennessee Williams, and a range of other usual suspects from that period's artistic fraternity. When Richardson left Cooper for the lights of New York, Cooper, in the great tradition of spurned lovers, burned...
