Publisher Description

In the bohemian and brilliant Montparnasse of the 1920s, Kiki managed to escape poverty to become one of the most charismatic figures of the avant garde years between the wars. Partner to Man Ray, whose most legendary photos she inspired, she would be immortalized by Kisling, Foujita, Per Krohg, Calder, Utrillo and Léger. 


Kiki is the muse of a generation that sought to escape the hangover of the Great War, but she is above all one of the first emancipated women of the 20th century. Above and beyond her sexual and emotional freedom, Kiki made her mark with her freedom of style, word and thought that could be learned from only one school – the school of life. 


“Catel and Bocquet paint a passionate and tender portrait of the woman who became the companion to Foujita and Man Ray, and a friend to Modigliani, Duchamp, Cocteau, Desnos and Aragon.” – Le Figaro
