Abstract:

The scope and character of artistic life in Paris during the Roaring Twenties and the Depression Thirties are the subject of the present book, brilliantly treated in a collection of extraordinary photographs and a richly informative text by Carol Mann, novelist, journalist, and scholar of twentieth-century art. The end of what Europeans call the Great War (1914-1918) marked the beginning of tremendous creativity in the aesthetic and social life of Paris. The glittering,

In this book the art life of the era is comprehensively documented and placed in its original context, showing the extent to which the extreme, often baffling, antics of the avant-garde affected quotidian existence. Captured in image and text alike are gatherings of artists and intellectuals in cafes, studios, new boutiques, innovative examples of.

Architecture and interiors, theatrical sets, dance performances, and major expositions - all of which radiate the mood and energy that fired the age.
