Chev:

Sorry, I don't have the other photos. I saw them all in a Man Ray catalogue raisonne many years ago in a reference library. I grabbed that one picture off the net a while back, but I don't recall where.

Nice!

Portrait of the artist as a young absintheur.

Take a look at the photo of Strindberg on page 23, you can see two Pontarlier Glasses with spoons on the table next to him.........Great Book!......I have an original hardcover.........I may know where a stash of hardbound originals are, will have to check.

Well I'll be damned ...

Do you have the other three images (Printemps, Hiver, Ete)? I'd like to see them. After all, it's art!

Absolutely. It's a Man Ray photo of Kiki (and himself?): "Automne". Part of a series of 4, (Printemps, Hiver, Ete...) that featured various explicit forms of penetration. Aparently they were used for the cover of a Jacques Prevert book, but I've never seen that.

'kiki' is french slang for 'dick'

it still is used as a cute little nickname by some, but i don't know why...

She couldn't ... they'd have arrested her for not wearing a bra.

Jesus, someone has breathed life into the arts and philosophical sundries thread.

As for the model, she'd be alright if it wasn't for the 2 shiners, she should report her lover to the police.

Maybe that's why Picasso liked her ... she was a bit cube-like.

for a model, she's got one helluva schnozz on her.she looks like she could be one of the Marx Brothers.

I just saw that this book is now out in paperback for $18. I've been lusting after this for years. I've only ever seen it in university libraries, and rare booksellers for $70 and up.

It's about the lifestyles of the artsy and decadent in Paris 1900-1930, ostensibly people associated with the model Kiki de Montparnasse, but it really includes everybody. Chock full of photos and stories, impeccably researched.
