Imagine one tightly written book that can tell you what the art world was like for much of the 20th Century! Jack Flam is the man who did just that in Matisse and Picasso. Then, imagine learning all about the lives of Matisse and Picasso and their loves along with their push-pull friendship and competition. After that, get the skinny on the paintings both men painted. I never even saw all the --------in Picasso's paintings. Now, it is hard to see anything else.
I found this book to be much more exciting then typical biographies that include all the boring parts of people's lives. Here, you get all the interesting parts with all the boring parts left out. I read every word and recommend the book without reservation. In fact, I believe every art student needs to read this book and every artist, every art lover, collector, gallery owner, and mainstream affictionado.
