This book was originally published in 1987 and for many years was sought after by collectors all over the world. Now it has recently been republished....... but i just had the luck, to get my hands on the first edition, for less money via ebay.
This book is an interpretation of the world of Parisian art through the eyes of Coco Chanel. In 1987 Jean Leymarie created a book that followed the life of Coco Chanel, her work and her links to the art world. The book features photos of Coco Chanel, Cocteau, Modigliani, Matisse, Renoir, Iribe, Doisneau....
In the early 20 th century, Coco Chanel was introduced to Parisian avant - garde art by Jose - Mari Sert. Leymare investigated Coco's relationship with the artists, her friendship with Picasso and Dali, and how they influenced her design.
I am thrilled, that i own this book now.
Thanks for watching, as always (:o)
