This title presents an intimate window into the secret lives of more than seventy - five great artists by one of Frances most successful and best-known photographers. During the golden age when Montparnasse was teeming with artists, Robert Doisneau gained remarkable access to the key figures working in Paris from 1937 onwards, and he visited their studios and caught them in various private moments: working, reflecting, and even playing with their children. This book, which includes some previously unpublished photographs, shares Doisneaus intimate view on the work and lives of these artists. Many remain famous Picasso, David Hockney, Jasper Johns, Giacometti, Saul Steinberg, Marcel Duchamp, Le Corbusier, Foujita while others have fallen into obscurity, perhaps one day to be rediscovered. Regardless of the artists social status whether major luminary of the day or struggling newcomer Doisneau approached each subject with the same humble eye. His signature black-and-white photographs capture the nostalgia of the period and bear witness to these artists in the act of creating some of the worlds finest art. This book, published in conjunction with Doisneaus daughters, is a fascinating document of the daily lives of artists by one of the worlds most famous and popular photographers.
