Summary
"This is the colorful memoir of the brilliant, eccentric Parisian art dealer Berthe Weill (1865-1951), who championed many of the emerging masters of modern art in the first part of the twentieth century. In this, she was radical and pioneering. She madethe first sales in Paris for Picasso and Matisse, and she gave Modigliani the only solo show in his lifetime. Weill also promoted the work of women artists, and her salty memoir (originally published in 1933) details her struggles against sexism and anti-Semitism in the Parisian art world. This text has long been mined by historians for details about the Paris art scene at the turn of the twentieth century, but beyond that, Weill is little known because she was too poor to publish lavish catalogues or invest enormous sums in grooming artists and purchasing their work-which is how most art dealers operated. At the same time, she appears over and over in numerous artist biographies depicted as a colorful figure with an uncanny nose for sniffing out talent"--
