Product description

Review

Arresting...admirable...What an eye for art Roe has: she doesn't spin out unduly the descriptions, but you feel the presence of the work...brilliant. (The Guardian)

An elegant synthesis of complex material...it excels: Roe is a skilled and graceful writer. (The Telegraph)

Lively and engaging...in her entertaining, ingeniously structured account Roe brings Montmartre's heyday back to life. (The Sunday Times)

[Roe]skilfully weaves her descriptions of artworks into her romp through the artists' struggles and fractious relationships. (The Times)

A colourful narrative describing the travails and triumphs of an equally colourful cast...Roe describes the detail of daily life in Montmartre with particular skill. (New Statesman)

With evocative imagery Roe sketches out the intensely visual spectacle on which Montmartre's artistic community was able to draw (Financial Times)

Roe's writing is almost equally vivid...This bright, high-pitched chaos catches the spirit of the times (The Observer)

Sue Roe knows every inch of Montmartre then and now...this is a reliable, entertaining guide to [the] period. (The Daily Mail)

From the Back Cover

'A group biography that manages not to miss any steps. Roe has the gift of painting close-up descriptions and scenes. Admirable. What an eye for art Roe has. Brilliant' Guardian

'Between 1900 and 1910 the art world that mattered was gathered between the windmills that stood at the top and bottom of the hill of Montmartre in Paris: Matisse, Picasso, Braque, Gris, Modigliani, Brancusi and Gertrude Stein. Sue Roe's vibrant In Montmartre conjures up a ramshackle world of squabbling artists, their love affairs and suicides, and of reputations and great art somehow being made. At the centre of the carnival were Picasso and Matisse, the two cocks of the walk, facing off in wary admiration' The Times, Books of the Year

'Enjoyable, engaging, rollicking, the storytelling is lively' Spectator

'A reliable entertaining guide to a period when artists discovered new ways of seeing and of expressing themselves' Daily Mail

'Bright, high-pitched chaos catches the spirit of the times . . . blazes into life' Observer
