Interviews with and photos of some of the major 20th century artists in intimate settings Some of the greatest 20th-century artists are pictured and interviewed in this lovely large-format gift book. Paris Match magazine has followed, photographed, and interviewed them exclusively over a period of more than 60 years, and now their exceptional archives are opened in this book. These photos reveal rare moments at the heart of artistic creation—artists at work—in the intimacy of their studios and their secret gardens, surrounded by their families and friends. Take a unique look at Chagall's opera ceiling, Dali's awakened dreams, Miro's suns, and Francis Bacon's studies: beyond these incredible works, an inside view of the lives of these geniuses is provided.
