Abstract:

“I was thrilled”, was Andy Warhol's enthusiastic reaction to the pictures of Florine Stettheimer (1871-1944). Many of the elements of her work inspired his Pop Art. During Stettheimer's life her sensuous and ironic paintings with their numerous figures were valued highly by artists and curators, although the general public remained largely unaware of their merits. Only after her death did her close friend Marcel Duchamp organise a retrospective in the Museum of Modern Art. The art and literature scene of Roaring Twenties New York gathered at Florine Stettheimer's extravagant parties. Surrounded by the cultivated and yet unconventional “Dada flair”, the artist staged her pictures as a performance - and was thereby well ahead of her time. As an outstanding painter she was not only at the heart of the American art business, but also attracted attention with her eccentric, subversive and often humorous poems, as well as demonstrating her talent as a stage and costume designer in the theatre. This bibliophile monograph about the multitalented artist is lavishly illustrated and tells a new, exciting history of the modern age through her artworks.

"J'étais emballé", telle était la réaction enthousiaste d'Andy Warhol aux photos de Florine Stettheimer (1871-1944). De nombreux éléments de son œuvre ont inspiré son Pop Art. Du vivant de Stettheimer, ses tableaux sensuels et ironiques, avec leurs nombreuses figures, étaient très appréciés des artistes et des conservateurs, mais le grand public restait largement ignorant de leurs qualités. Ce n'est qu'après sa mort que son ami intime Marcel Duchamp a organisé une rétrospective au Musée d'art moderne. La scène artistique et littéraire du New York des années folles se réunissait lors des fêtes extravagantes de Florine Stettheimer. Imprégnée du " esprit Dada " cultivé et pourtant peu conventionnel, l'artiste mettait en scène ses tableaux comme une performance - et était ainsi très en avance sur son temps. En tant que peintre exceptionnelle, elle n'était pas seulement au cœur du commerce de l'art américain, mais attirait également l'attention avec ses poèmes excentriques, subversifs et souvent humoristiques, tout en démontrant son talent de scénographe et de costumière au théâtre. Cette monographie de référence sur cette artiste aux multiples talents est abondamment illustrée et présente une nouvelle et passionnante histoire de l'ère moderne à travers ses œuvres.
