During the decades from 1900 to 1940, art in France developed in ways that were of paramount importance to twentieth-century art. This innovative and abundantly illustrated book sets these developments within the framework of the unstable social, political, intellectual, and artistic worlds of the time and analyzes the innovations of artists ranging from Matisse to Picasso, Duchamp to Dali. "Revelatory art history."-Timothy Mathews, Times Higher Education Supplement "Lavishly illustrated with beautiful works of art...Especially strong and inviting is the section dealing with the 'lives' of artists, poets, art dealers, and collectors. Green writes well about a variety of topics: among them, tradition, modernity, the city. It is fascinating to see such figures as Matisse and Picasso reemerging throughout the book in these various contexts."-Virginia Quarterly Review "The clarity of Green's writing, and his ability to identify key issues easily and to approach them from different directions make his book, in sum, splendidly discursive and fascinating. It will give excellent value to any student seeking the essence of the period, now and for some years to come." -Julian Freeman, The Art Book
