Paris 1937

Just in time for Bastille Day, or La Fete Nationale, the Lucille Little Fine Arts Library is exhibiting our copy of Paris 1937.  This book was commissioned at the time of the Exposition Internationale des Arts et Techniques dans la Vie Moderne (International Exposition dedicated to Art and Technology in Modern Life), which was held from May to November of 1937.  Prominent artists and writers of the day contributed, etchings, essays, and poetry for the publication, which was limited to 500 copies.  The exhibit features the prints by Matisse, Dufy, Bonnard, Laurencin, Moreau , Marquet and other artists.
