Description:
Bernard Boutet de Monvel, painter, portraitist, and illustrator, immortalized the glamorous figures of the Cafe Society in Paris, New York, Newport, and Palm Beach. Elegant and seductive, he was a dandy who moved in the highest echelons of society, socializing with Maharajahs and captains of industry. Son of the famous French children's book illustrator Maurice Boutet de Monvel, he left his own body of work that revealed him as a master of geometry and modernity, the painter par excellence of the Art Deco style. The artist started with color etchings, studied sculpture, went on to create illustrations for Harper's Bazaar in the 1920s and '30s, and became best known for his striking and realistic oil portraits of high profile figures. He captured the spectacular details of the couture fashion and high jewelry that denoted the status of his cafe society contemporaries, to which he had privileged access. His paintings featured Elsie de Wolf, The Maharajah of Indore, William K. and Gertrude Vanderbuilt, Lowell Dillingham, Pierre du Pont, the Marquis de Cuevas, and Mary Millicent Rogers, among others.
Written by expert Stephane Jacques Addade, this is the first monograph to be published on the artist in English, and traces the artist's fascinating career. His studio-which was filled with personal effects and a vast number of original works-had remained virtually untouched since his death in 1949; this book accompanies an auction of his estate at Sotheby's Paris in April Please click here to ask a question
