At no other time and place was the art of portraiture so rich or varied as in early 20th-century Paris. Liberated by photography from the demand for naturalism, it flourished in a kaleidoscope of styles – Cubist, Surrealist, Expressionist. This catalogue of a major exhibition at the Bruce Museum in Connecticut reproduces almost 50 works by Picasso, Matisse, Chagall, Modigliani and Duchamp, along with a host of lesser-known artists, and explores the vibrant artistic and social milieu in which they worked.
