Reviews

"The birth of modernism a century ago was one of history's greatest moments of creative disruption, including Einstein's physics, Stravinsky's music, and the writings of Joyce and Proust. One major spark was an astonishing painting by Picasso, and Miles Unger brings us both the drama and brilliance of that creation in this thrilling book." -- Walter Isaacson, author of Leonardo da Vinci
"Riveting. . . . This engrossing book chronicles with precision and enthusiasm a painting with lasting impact in today's art world." * Publishers Weekly (starred review) *
"An engrossing read. . . . Unger draws not just from his own wide knowledge and considered taste but from an imposing array of journals, memoirs, biographies and periodicals. From these he offers a historically and psychologically rich account of the young Picasso and his coteries in Barcelona and Paris."
-- Alexander C. Kafka * The Washington Post *
"Illuminating." -- Barbara Spindel * Christian Science Monitor *
"[A] vibrant biography. . . . Unger succeeds in making Les Demoiselles d'Avignon, the book's titular painting, accessible. Heady modern art is made over as approachable and exciting." * Booklist *
"Bohemian Montmartre comes brilliantly to life, as do the artist's struggles." * The New Yorker *
