One of the most fashionable and intriguing figures of the 1920s Paris scene is Kiki de Montparnasse. The muse modeled for many famous Surrealists/Dadaists such as Man Ray, Kisling, Foujita, Calder and more, Montparnasse is going to be even more well-known after having a book written all about her fascinating and interesting life. She may have been portrayed slightly in the Woody Allen flick, ‘Midnight in Paris’ as the character Adriana as played by French actress, Marion Cotillard.
The book, entitled "Paris in the 1920s with Kiki de Montparnasse" is exactly what the title says, a personal insight into the people and portraits she surrounded herself with.
Complied by Xavier Girard, the book contains many interesting and lavish photographs from that time period. It serves up Kiki’s account of what happened during the 'Roaring Twenties' in order to create a vivid picture of the time period and its cultural, political, philosophical, and artistic works. Every single image tells an amazing and unique tale of the times and ideals of the 'Golden Age of Paris.'
Kiki herself was just as interesting as her time period. Not only content on being an artist’s model, Kiki also was a cabaret star, an actress, dancer and even an artist with two exhibitions in the 20s. Many revolutionary writers, artists, and personalities knew the self-crowned Queen of Montparnasse.
