About the Book
Quentin Blake is one of the best-known -- and best-selling -- illustrators of our time. Here he selects 60 diverse images of Parisian women and introduces them to young readers in a delightfully personal and sharply observant style. Organized into broad themes -- work and leisure, town and country, family and society, theatre and portraiture -- the book uses lively text and witty cartoons to explore French life and art and the mystery of French womanhood in the 19th and 20th centuries. Images by major painters such as Courbet, Renoir, Degas, and Cassatt are featured, alongside unfamiliar works by lesser-known masters.
