9780044409298: Paris Was a Woman: Portraits from the Left Bank

The city of Paris has often been portrayed as a seductive, mysterious woman - both mistress ans muse to generations of male poets from Baudelaire to e.e. cummings to Louis Aragon. But of course, not all those drawn to the City of Light have been men. In particular the lives and work of modernist women "avant la guerre" offer us a very different view of Paris during its most magical era. This book is an illustrated collective portrait of the unique community of women who became known as the "women of the left bank". Authors Colette, Djuna Barnes, and Gertrude Stein, the poet Natalie Clifford Barney, painters Romaine Brooks and Marie Laurencin, editors Bryher, Alice Toklas, Margaret Anderson and Jane Heap, photographers Berenice Abbott and Gisele Freund, booksellers Sylvia Beach and Adreienne Monnier, and journalist Janet Flanner all figured in this legendary mileau.
