    It is a wonderful thing how much courage it takes even to buy a clock you are very much liking when it is a kind of one everyone thinks only a servant should be owning It is very wonderful how much courage it takes to buy bright coloured handkerchiefs when everyone having good taste uses white ones or pale coloured ones, when a bright coloured one gives you so much pleasure you suffer always at not having them It is very hard to have the courage of your being in you, in clocks, in handkerchiefs, in aspirations, in liking things that are low, in anything Gertrude Stein The young Pablo PIcasso, circa 1904, photographed by Ricard Canals i Llambi.As I continue to add prints of Modernist and Impressionist painters with a few Da Vinci s and Vermeer s to my growing collection,I find it so inspirational to have surrounded myself with such divergent artistic concepts When I look at a Matisse or a Picasso or a Vlaminck or a van Dongen or a Modigliani or a Dali or a Van Gogh, their expressions of ideas are so unique to them that it is as if I m seeing the world through their eyes I can steal the eyes of a painter, at least briefly, and even once my eyes have flicked away from the painting, th...

    This is a extremely well researched book and there is a ton of information here I m slightly perplexed as to why I didn t find it compelling reading than I didperhaps it s partly because I just read a biography of Picasso and a lot of this was repetitive, maybe it was because of the way the story jumps from artist to artist a bit too much, maybe because there are hardly any illustrationseight reproduced paintings and fourteen photos, period, so I constantly was ha...

    I m pretty sure Picasso and Matisse s lives were enthralling than this biography attempts to depict.

    Just as I did not want to leave Montmartre when I visited last August, I did not want this book to end I love biographies that are dedicated to place over person, to capturing a small group of individuals that come to characterise a place and create an unforgettable atmosphere that reverberates through the years I am a sucker for the story of the starving artist the elite group of dedicated people who suffer for their art, living in squalor and burning through personal and professional relationships in the name of vision and creation This book was perfect for me I did not want a minutely detailed account of any of these artists personal lives I did not want to know about their childhoods or the intimate details of all their relationships I was much interested in their stories in the context of Montmartre and the way that life there shaped their art and allowed them to form their artistic identities It was an interesting read for someone who knows Montmartre only as the place dubbed the artist district of Paris My experience was that of one of the many tourists swarming its boulevards over a century after they have all left I know it only in terms of the residua...
