Publisher's Summary

The real revolution in the arts first took place not, as is commonly supposed, in the 1920s to the accompaniment of the Charleston, black jazz and mint juleps but more quietly and intimately, in the shadow of the windmills - artificial and real - and in the cafés and cabarets of Montmartre during the first decade of the century.

The cross-fertilization of painting, writing, music and dance produced a panorama of activity characterized by the early works of Picasso, Braque, Matisse, Derain, Vlaminck and Modigliani, the appearance of the Ballet Russe and the salons of Gertrude Stein.

In In Montmartre, Sue Roe vividly brings to life the bohemian world of art in Paris between 1900 and 1910.

loved the story hated the narration

great story, full of passionate artists and iconic art. I struggled so much with the narrators pronunciation of any word, place or name that was not English in origin. i would have enjoyed this production so much more if she had just stuck to her native accent throughout rather than putting on a heavy accent of France, Italy or Spain. this book took me many tries of starting and failing to get through. nothing about this production felt easy to listen to.

THE BEST BOOK YOU WILL EVER READ OR LISTEN TO !

I love this book so much I don’t even have the words to do it justice! Not only is it extremely well researched on the facts of Picasso, Matisse and the history of the artists living in Montmartre at the turn of the 20th century ~ Emma Bering has done an OUTSTANDING job of narrating the story. I have listened to this book OVER &OVER (while I’m painting in my studio) and each time I hear and learn more than the last time I listened. Don’t hesitate > buy it now! I only wish I could contact both Sue and Emma and BEG them to team up and continue the story into the next chapter of the lives of these amazing artists ~ “part 2 In Montmartre: during and after the wars” 🙏🏻 Thank you!
