Jules Pascin and Montparnasse

First of all there are not many titles available on Jules Pascin at www.ftn-books.com, or any other site, because only a few titles were published over the years,  but that does not mean i do not like the works by this artist, who lived part of his life in Paris and belonged to the Montparnasse artist circle.

Jules Pascin, or the “Prince of Montparnasse, was a Bulgarian artist known for his paintings and drawings. He later became an American citizen. His most frequent subject was women, depicted in casual poses, usually nude or partly dressed.

Pascin was educated in Vienna and Munich. He traveled for a time in the United States, spending most of his time in the South. He is best known as a Parisian painter, who is associated with the artistic circles of Montparnasse and was one of the emigres of the School of Paris. Having struggled with depression and alcoholism, he committed suicide at the age of 45.

His works range from highly realistic, raw portraits to society portraits for the nouveau riche and  in between many beautiful women.

Highly  recognizable, erotic and typically Pascin
