  1. My wife, after reading Kiki de Montparnasse for something near a half hour, stopped and asked me Is this for real Did men really just go up to women and offer them a few bucks to flash their boobs I assured her that it was and that it s the same today and it s not a big thing and everybody does it I was not very convincing Probably because I was as surprised as her I knew the early twentieth century in Europe1 was a rambunctious time what with the swift ideological, artistic, and moral paradigm [...]

  2. In 1979 I visited a Surrealism Dada exhibit at the Chicago Museum of Contemporary Art and I was enthralled Still remember it After that I visited every similar exhibit I could see in the midwest and collected books on that and related subjects Recently I attended yet another related exhibition Shatter Rupture Break was a spring 2015 Chicago Art Institute exhibition that examines modern art and the rapidly shifting conditions of modernity through the provocative lens of fragmentation Artists such [...]

  3. Montparnasse in the Twenties was fun central, everywhere wine and surrealism and bottoms I wish i was there now Kiki was at the heart of it all, and this is a delightful, sad but fun graphic novel biography, full of key moments and little anecdotes from her life and times, and i thought it was quite lovely.

  4. Where to even begin This book was hefty, and Kiki s life is contextualized in helpful and beautiful ways And, I would have read a book twice as long Kiki is the affectionate name given to Alice Prin when she first starts modeling for artists just after WWI Kiki was born into relative poverty in the French country side, and raised, along with several cousins, by her mythically lovely maternal grandmother She was removed around the age of twelve from her country home, a home and a landscape she lo [...]

  5. Alice Prin was born in 1901 into poverty in rural France Raised by a loving grandmother along with several other bastards, her mother was in Paris chasing artists and the high life while her biological father was nowhere to be found, and when Alice turned 12 she was sent to Paris Her high energy and natural beauty became too much for her carefree mother and after being caught modelling nude for a local painter, Alice was turned away by her mother and forced to make a living on the streets It s f [...]

  6. Une magnifique reconstitution de la vie de Kiki de Montparnasse, en successions de fragments, class s selon les maisons qu elle a habit es au cours de sa vie C est la fois rafra chissant et bouillonnant, joyeux et touchant Un document patant, o on retrouve encore tellement de th matiques contemporaines conception de l art, de la f minit , entre autres J ai parfois du mal comprendre comment on peut aborder tant de probl matiques dans quelques croquis et des petites bulles, mais pourtant a marche, [...]

  10. This graphic biography introduced me to Kiki who escaped poverty to become one of the most charismatic figures of the avant garde years between the wars Partner to Man Ray, she would be immortalized by many artists The muse of a generation, she was one of the first emancipated women of the 20th century While I did not love the art in this book, I was fascinated by this woman, and her life Since this book attempts to cover her entire life, it has to jump around a lot, and introduce us to loads of [...]

  11. Cette b d brique est un tourbillon de visages, de f tes, de toiles, de liaisons amoureuses, de musique d apr s midi en terrasse.C est tourdissant.C est surtout l histoire d Alice Prin, arriv e Paris l adolescence devenue dans les ann es 20 l une des mod les les plus en demande de Montparnasse, chouchout e par les artistes de l avant garde parisienne Kiki, comme on la surnomme tr s vite, est haute en couleur, bruyante, parfois vulgaire mais toujours vivante, d licieusement heureuse au c ur des fo [...]

  12. I loved this graphic novel based on the life of Alice Prin, better known as Kiki of Montparnasse She rose to fame as a model for a variety of artists, most famously perhaps Man Ray who took the photo of Kiki known as Ingre s Violin, as represented on the cover She was a cabaret performer, muse, and artist in her own right and was well known for being at the heart of many a party and the breaker of many hearts The story can be read without any knowledge of the community of creative expatriates th [...]

  13. This is the second longish graphic novel i have read and I m not sure i m into them However I give credit that at least KIKI is a charismatic character worth writing about I just wish it was done in a a succinct way and with specialised artwork maybe in colour that conveyed her beauty and lively character while spending time on her inner thoughts and why she acted the way she did rather that introducing us to every famous french artist she met I wanted to know about her than everyone around h [...]

  14. My first graphic novel I finished this book within 12 hours, and I love it The colourful life of Kiki de Montparnasse, a model, painter, artist, singer, actress, dancer, an entertainer onstage as well as offstage She was a free spirit in the truest form I also enjoyed the beautiful drawings and the details regarding France circa 1901 1953.

Olipa kiinnostava el m kerta sarjis Montparnassen sotienv lisen ajan kuningattaresta, taiteilijoiden muusasta, Kikist Kun sarjisgenre on aika vieras, en osaa siihen verrata, mutta yksitt isen lukukokemuksena hieno ja avartava Etenkin, koska kirja kuvaa p asiassa suosikkiaikakauttani 1920 lukua ja sen willi pariisilaista el m.

  16. Non avevo idea di chi fosse la regina di Montparnasse Questo l ho pescato dall Archivio del Fumetto di Andreis La copertina mi ha incuriosito e ho incominciato a leggere Premetto che non condivido il modo di vivere di Kiki, ma questo non mi ha impedito di provare una certa simpatia per lei L idea di andar a mostrar il seno per qualche spicciolo Ma neanche Per innegabile il fascino che sprigiona la protagonista E c anche un po di invidia nei suoi confronti evidente che lei era a suo agio con il s [...]

  17. Comme toujours, jamais d u du duo Catel Bocquet Encore une belle biographie de la sulfureuse et intr pide Kiki de Montparnasse dont je ne connaissais que partiellement la vie Qu importe l attrait pour le personnage o l poque il est toujours int ressant de se plonger dans un Paris lointain, mais qui est encore si proche Les moeurs de l poque ont certes volu s mais on voit bien que les pr jug s f minins perdurent une chelle moindre, mais perdurent La narration est g niale, le dessin tr s expressif [...]

  18. Comme Josephine, cette BD est un petit bijou, et que dire de Kiki, quelle femme Un personnage que j aurais aim rencontrer

  19. De setting is natuurlijk schitterend Het Parijs van de jaren 20 spreekt tot ieders verbeelding Het idee om een verhaal te vertellen vanuit het standpunt van Alice Prin Kiki van Montparnasse is in die context een schot in de roos een sensuele vrouw komt in Parijs in contact met het toenmalige kruim van de kunstenwereld.Maar Kiki laat heel wat kansen liggen De tekenstijl is te jeugdig, de structuur te rechtlijnig, de overgangen te bruusk te vaak betrapte ik mezelf erop de paginanummers te controle [...]

  20. A biography in the form of a graphic novel about a woman who almost defined the art scene and the night life of Paris and particularly Montparnasse during the 1920 s Of course I had never heard of her before but I had heard of many of the men in her life.I am not a one who is interested in celebraties of today but when they become history I start to get interested, especially if they had a controversial or eventful life Kiki liked to party and unfortunately that ended her life eventually This is [...]

  21. I must not have been paying attention, because until I had the book in my hands, I had no idea it wasn t a traditional biography I wanted to read it because it has to do with art and artists, and I am a former art major.There was nothing in the pages to endear me to any of the characters, except perhaps Foujita Kiki was rather annoying and childish The artists came off as assholes or abusers, and the fact that they were artists is not an excuse in my mind Also, this book did a lot to de glamoriz [...]

  22. This huge biographic comic takes us through a series of vignettes illustrating the life and times of Kiki, model, muse and party girl who in turn takes us on a tour of the roaring bohemian scene of Paris at the birth of Surrealism and Dadaism with her colorful cast of friends who just happen to be the great artists of that time This book had a breezy, frivolous feel to me at first, but the I read, the interested I became in this astounding and colorful character and that thriving art scene in [...]

  23. The ending of this graphic novel includes that old legend about the benevolent stranger who walks by the blind beggar whose cup is empty She picks up his sign, transforms it, and, as she walks off, the clinking of coin upon coin won t stop It was the first time I d seen this story since then, I ve seen it in a thousand contexts the worst is when they re used to illustrate the power of some iconic ad man But Kiki was my first I d always much rather it be her.

  24. A glorious taster of Bohemian life in the 1920s Simple style of art but very effective, it s of a selection of vignettes that comprised KiKi s life, and it s also one of those books that makes you want to look up all the people mentioned in its pages although I was impressed by the life stories of the srtists she was involved with, set out at the back of this book.

  25. While I appreciate how graphic novels can tell a story in a unique way, that did not happen here Better to stick with real photos and learn about Kiki from Billy Kluver and Julie Martin s Kiki s Paris Artists and Lovers 1900 1930.

  26. Apparently for the bohemian, 1920s, Left Bank woman, showing your breasts to strangers worked as a kind of currency

  27. Catel Muller has an entire series of Graphic Novels that deal with what I ve phrased as the whores from lore form France This series includes the titular Kiki de Montparnasse, Josephine Baker, Olympe de Gouges, and a forthcoming issue on Golden Age film director Alice Guy Blach The series, while comprehensive in some ways each book is about 500 pages in length , is meant to be an introduction on the life of Kiki de Montparnasse as oppose to a full Graphic Novel study of Kiki s life In some mome [...]
