    schema:description "From an acclaimed French writer, a vivid & compelling history of the most remarkable period in international culture: the birth of modernism in the cross-cultural ferment that was Paris in the early 1900s. 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. These lives and others are painted in this remarkable time, capturing the beauty and vitality distilled from these artists, whose work became the cornerstones of great art. -- Publisher description."@en ;
