Catalogue Note

Kiki de Montparnasse, whose real name was Alice Prin, became famous during the 1920s as an artist, model and cabaret singer. She was the symbol of bohemian Paris during the années folles, when Montparnasse supplanted Montmartre as the epicenter of the art world. A native of Burgundy, she quickly became a favorite model for Foujita, Kisling and Picabia, amongst others. Later, her collaborations with her lover Man Ray would produce some of his most striking images of Surrealism including Noire et blanche and Le Violon d'Ingres.
