All prices include VAT
Part of Assouline’s special series, the Legends Collection, each hardcover tome is housed in its own elegant slipcase. These titles are the authority on their subjects, inspired by mythic eras, artists, and high society. Fit for royalty, these books are inspired by tastemakers across the centuries, and are essential to the culturally inclined influencers of today.
From humble origins, Kiki de Montparnasse became the muse of Man Ray, Kisling, Foujita, Calder, and other important artists living in Paris in the Roaring Twenties. Many revolutionary writers, artists, and personalities flourished on the bohemian Left Bank, each one inventing their own iconic style, and Kiki, the Queen of Montparnasse, was the thread connecting them. Not only an artist’s model, Kiki was also a cabaret performer, actress, and an artist in her own right with two successful exhibitions. Every image tells a fascinating story in this lavishly illustrated, oversize luxury slipcase volume, revealing the artistic, social, and historical events that created and surrounded the incredible artistic flowering of the now mythical Montparnasse neighborhood.
