Portrait of Kiki de Montparnasse by Charles Camoin 'Attributed', France, 1920s


Portrait of Kiki de Montparnasse attributed to Charles Camoin (1879-1965). This watercolor on paper bears a "Camoin" signature bottom right, 1920s. Dimensions: 28.5 x 39 (at sight, without frame), 44.5 x 54.5cm with frame. Alice Ernestine Prin (1901-1953), nicknamed the Queen of Montparnasse, and known as Kiki de Montparnasse, was a French artist's model, literary muse, nightclub singer, actress and painter. She flourished in, and helped define, the liberated culture of Paris in the 1920s. "Adopting a single name, "Kiki", she became a celebrity in the Montparnasse social scene and a popular artist's model, posing for dozens of artists, including Tsuguharu Foujita, Francis Picabia, Pablo Gargallo, Moise Kisling". Her companion for most of the 1920s was Man Ray, who made multiple photos of her. She is the subject of some of his best-known images, such as "Le violon d'Ingres" and "Noire et blanche". Charles Camoin is a French painter who belonged to Fauvism, an early 20th century artistic movement. Fauvism is the style of les Fauves (French for "the wild beasts"), a group of early 20th century modern artists whose works emphasized painterly qualities and strong color. The leaders of the movement were André Derain and Henri Matisse.
