Van Dongen & le Bateau-Lavoir
Author: Anita Hopmans
Publisher: Companyédition Somogy/Musée de Montmartre
Le mythique Bateau-Lavoir, situé place Emile-Goudeau, à quelques pas de l'actuel musée de Montmartre, deviendra, au début du XXe siècle, le berceau de l'art moderne où se rencontrent et échangent, dans un esprit indépendant, Picasso, Braque, Derain, Vlaminck, Matisse, Apollinaire, Max Jacob, Otto van Rees et bien d'autres. Kees van Dongen y emménage à la fin de l'année 1905, probablement sur l'invitation de Picasso qui y résidait depuis avril 1904, dans l'ancien atelier de Paco Durio. Il y restera jusqu'au début de l'année 1907. Cet ouvrage passionnant montre à quel point le court séjour de Kees van Dongen au Bateau-Lavoir fut déterminant pour l'évolution de sa carrière. Plusieurs oeuvres phares présentées illustrent les moments-clés de cette période.

Surrealism in Paris
Author: Philippe Büttner, Fondation Beyeler
Publisher: Hatje Cantz Pub
Surrealism rose from the ruins of interbellum Europe to become one of the most influential artistic and literary movements of the twentieth century. Under the leadership of André Breton, Surrealist artists undertook a passionate search for "freedom in all of its forms," delving into the imagery and language of the subconscious through the revolutionary methods of automatism, radical juxtaposition and chance. Surrealism in Parisreproduces a spectacular selection of artworks from the Fondation Beyeler's exhibition of the same name. Featuring key paintings, sculptures and works on paper by Hans (Jean) Arp, Hans Bellmer, Salvador Dalí, Giorgio di Chirico, Marcel Duchamp, Max Ernst, Alberto Giacometti, René Magritte, Man Ray, André Masson, Joan Miró, Meret Oppenheim, Francis Picabia, Pablo Picasso and Yves Tanguy, and essays by a host of renowned scholars, this substantial catalogue revisits a crucial moment in French cultural history.

Kees van Dongen
Author: Jan Juffermans, Kees van Dongen
Publisher: Lund Humphries Publishers
A painter of international repute, Kees van Dongen (1877-1968) is perhaps best known for his enthusiastic adoption of Fauvism; a movement whose principles he embraced with boundless curiosity and with which he established a singular and dominant position. However, beyond this he was also a prolific graphic artist who mastered the techniques of lithography, etching, aquatint, engraving, pochoir and offset prints, book illustration and poster design.Historically, there has been a dearth of reliable and usable documentation about the diverse range of prints that the artist produced. This has now been remedied. Comprising over 350 colour reproductions, Kees van Dongen catalogues all the prints the artist ever made. Supported by an enlightening narrative that provides fascinating insights into the development of Van Dongen's print career, such as his masterful control of the pochoir technique, this book also offers full descriptions of the works catalogued. An invaluable resource, Kees van Dongen: The Graphic Work is essential reading for collectors, curators, academics, students and enthusiasts of Van Dongen's work.
Novels in Three Lines
Author: Felix Feneon
Publisher: New York Review of Books
A NEW YORK REVIEW BOOKS ORIGINAL Novels in Three Lines collects more than a thousand items that appeared anonymously in the French newspaper Le Matin in 1906—true stories of murder, mayhem, and everyday life presented with a ruthless economy that provokes laughter even as it shocks. This extraordinary trove, undiscovered until the 1940s and here translated for the first time into English, is the work of the mysterious Félix Fénéon. Dandy, anarchist, and critic of genius, the discoverer of Georges Seurat and the first French publisher of James Joyce, Fénéon carefully maintained his own anonymity, toiling for years as an obscure clerk in the French War Department. Novels in Three Lines is his secret chef-d’oeuvre, a work of strange and singular art that brings back the long-ago year of 1906 with the haunting immediacy of a photograph while looking forward to such disparate works as Walter Benjamin’s Arcades Project and the Death and Disaster series of Andy Warhol.

This concisely written book gives an elementary introduction to a classical area of mathematics—approximation theory—in a way that naturally leads to the modern field of wavelets. The exposition, driven by ideas rather than technical details and proofs, demonstrates the dynamic nature of mathematics and the influence of classical disciplines on many areas of modern mathematics and applications. Key features and topics: * Description of wavelets in words rather than mathematical symbols * Elementary introduction to approximation using polynomials (Weierstrass’ and Taylor’s theorems) * Introduction to infinite series, with emphasis on approximation-theoretic aspects * Introduction to Fourier analysis * Numerous classical, illustrative examples and constructions * Discussion of the role of wavelets in digital signal processing and data compression, such as the FBI’s use of wavelets to store fingerprints * Minimal prerequisites: elementary calculus * Exercises that may be used in undergraduate and graduate courses on infinite series and Fourier series Approximation Theory: From Taylor Polynomials to Wavelets will be an excellent textbook or self-study reference for students and instructors in pure and applied mathematics, mathematical physics, and engineering. Readers will find motivation and background material pointing toward advanced literature and research topics in pure and applied harmonic analysis and related areas.
Facsimile of 1933 Edition. The Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas is written by Stein in the guise of an autobiography authored by Alice B. Toklas, her life partner. In 1998, Modern Library ranked it as one of the 20 greatest English-language nonfiction books of the 20th Century. It is a fascinating recollection of the art scene in Paris as the couple were friends with Paul CÉzanne, Henri Matisse and Pablo Picasso. They begin the war years in England but return to France, volunteering for the American Fund for the French Wounded, driving around France, helping the wounded and homeless. They become friends with Sherwood Anderson and Ernest Hemingway. It is by most accounts one of the best descriptions of the lives and morays of the American and European literary and artistic scene between the wars.
