Exhibition catalogue Van Dongen & le Bateau-Lavoir, presented at the Musée de Montmartre, Paris (15 feb.- 26 august 2018).

Kees van Dongen moved in around December 1905, very probably invited there by Pablo Picasso, who had been living in Paco Durio’s former studio since April 1904. He stayed there until 1907.

This fascinating book illustrates the extent to which Kees van Dongen’s brief stay in the Bateau-Lavoir had a decisive influence on his subsequent career. Several significant works illustrate the key phases in this period.
