Matisse's War by Peter Everett
Book DescriptionAt seventy, Henri Matisse is a trim, clean old gentleman with a passion for naked women. He is Un Monstre Sacre who depicts with passion and conviction only what he takes pleasure in, only what he chooses to see. He is art personified. If there were no Matisse there would be no art as such...He has purged everything from his painting except anxieties concerning structure and colour; his struggle is with these alone! "Matisse's War" is a minutely researched yet fictional account of Matisse's life during the years 1939-1945. It is also a superb portrait of the lives of the major French artists and writers under the German occupation. Louis Aragon, Malraux, Picasso and Bonnard all appear prominently in the narrative.

Bellocq's Women, Paperback (June 2001)
In 1912, in Storyville, the notorious red-light district of New Orleans, a photographer named E J Bellocq took a series of photographs of the women who worked in the brothels. Rediscovered in the 1950s, Bellocq's photographs have become famous, but the man himself remains a mystery.
Voyages of Alfred Wallis, Paperback (August 2000)» View all books by Peter Everett
Alfred Wallis was born in 1855 and died in a workhouse in Cornwall in 1942. A fisherman, sailing from Newlyn, and St Ives, he began to paint in the 1920s - strange, brilliant pictures of ships and the sea. This title explores the psyche of an artist who knew no fame in his lifetime but whose paintings have found vast popularity since his death.
