When Pablo Picasso first arrived in Paris in 1900, the most progressive young artists all lived and worked on the hillside of Montmartre. Over the next decade he would have encountered Matisse, Derain, Maurice de Vlaminck, Braque and Modigliani, artists who, between them, would revolutionize artistic expression. Sue Roe’s book offers a vivid group portrait of these habitues of Montmartre, describing their bold, experimental works and the origins of movements such as Fauvism, Cubism and Futurism.
