Student instructions:

Your article, "France in the Jazz Age," has just been accepted for publication by the scholarly† journal, Studies in Twentieth-Century Art and Culture. You have just received a letter from the managing editor, enclosing an annotated list of the illustrations you have worked out in a recent meeting with the editor:

  • Matisse, "Untitled (seated dancer)," 1927 (drawing or lithograph--- which?). San Francisco.
  • Matisse, "FÍtes des Fleurs," 1923 (oil) Nice?
  • Picasso, "Portrait of Reverdy," 1922 (etching?)
  • Man Ray, "Kiki of Montparnasse," 1924 (photo) Eastman House?
  • Rosales, "Fokine as Harlequin," 1924 (probably bronze) San Francisco
  • Fosbery, "The Café" (need medium, lithograph?) probably in Canada
  • Leger, "The Siphon," 1924 (oil) need better transparency from Albright-Knox
  • Picabia, "Têtes Paysage," 1928 (oil) who owns this? Not marked on photo.
  • Brancusi, "Bird in Space" (choose version)
  • Soudbinine, "Fortissimo" screen, 1925 (lacquer). Russian, moved to Paris. We think this is in the Guggenheim collection.
  • Paul Poiret, "Dress and Hat," 1923 (silk, etc.) in the Met??
