(8.8 x 5.6 x 0.8 inches). 282 pages. Translated by Dorothy and Randolph Weaver. Shipping Weight: 16.1 ounces. The French language edition appeared in 1954. Paperback. Michel George-Michel, art critic and amateur artist, has spent a lifetime haunting the studios of Paris. Here. He plays the role of Boswell - not for just one man, but for all the great French masters of the last four decades: Dégas, Toulouse-Lautrec, Renoir, Russo, Picasso, Chagall, and the rest. Some more his close friends, others he knew only casually; but in this book he brilliantly evokes the extraordinary personality of each one. This is a marvelous gallery of antidotes: racy, amusing, tragic, nostalgic and outrageous. This year. Georges-Michel was there when Utrillo and Modigliani came to blows over which of them was the greatest artist alive. He watched the keys paint - even drew pictures of the great man, himself. He was present when a despairing Faso sat in front of a blank canvas; when a triumphant Dufy completed his enormous fresco History of Science. He ate stew with Rodin and smorgasbord with Derain: youth charity to an aged La Goulue. He listened to the most famous artists in the world tear each other apart or praised each other to the skies; sympathized with their failures and rejoiced in their success. From Renoir to Picasso is illustrated with previously unpublished drawings by many of the author's celebrated friends, and with Monsieur Georges-Michel's old charming pen and ink portraits. It is a warm and revealing sidelight to the creators of modern art.
