Located on the fringes of Paris, Montmartre attracted artists such as Toulouse-Lautrec, Pablo Picasso, Theophile Steinlen and Jules Cheret. By the beginning of the 20th century, the artists in the quarter had begun to create works blurring the boundaries between fine art and popular illustration, the artist and the audience, as well as class and gender distinctions. The creative expression that ensued was an exuberant mix of high and low - a breeding ground for what is today termed "popular culture". The carefully interlocked essays in "Montmartre and the Making of Mass Culture" demonstrate how and why this quarter was at the forefront of such innovation. The contributors bring a range of approaches to the topic, from political and religious history to art historical investigations and literary analysis of texts. The text examines fully Montmartre's many contributions to the creation of a mass culture that reigned supreme in the 20th century.
