Jacques Villon: Cubist Work on Paper
Jacques Villon is one of the 20th Century's most significant artists Stanley Hayter and others have called Villon "the father of modern print-making." Jacques Villon, actually named Gaston Duchamp, was probably the most significant peintre-graveur of the twentieth century in France. This book explores a segment of his painting and print-making skills, one commonly known as Cubism. Villon, and his brothers were a part of a group of infuential intellectual painters, poets and essayists who met regularly in villon's studio. His work is intimately connected with ideas that originated there. The author, in 2011, completed a definitive catalog of the entire collection of villon's work gathered over a forty year period--350 graphic and painting works on paper. The present study focuses specifically on 53 Cubist-related images from that collection, and discusses the influence of the "Section d'Or" on the artist's working method. The work is extensively referenced.
