Parisian Encounters - Great Loves and Grand Passions, Charles Hobson
18 Charles Hobson Parisian Encounters - Great Loves and Grand Passions
Chronicle Books 226028 San Francisco 1994 0811807037 / 9780811807036 Hardcover Near Fine Condition In love in Paris. Could anything be more romantic? Paris has been the setting for some of the world's greatest loves and grandest passions: the intoxicating, doomed romance of George Sand and Frederic Chopin; the tempestuous affair of Auguste Rodin and Camille Claudel; the sensual liaison of Anais Nin and Henry Miller. Each of the romances depicted in Parisian Encounters, played out against the backdrop of Paris, was a combustion of creativity and desire, an impetus to genius, to art, and to action. These haunting portraits of eight famous couples reveal love's light and dark sides, showing its power as well as its destructive force. Side by side, the lovers seem to look at one another, and, in their own words, describe their relationship, making each page an artistic re-creation of the romance. The moment of the meeting is documented in exquisite period maps, positioned next to an eccentric chronology of the affair, and the unique format allows readers to create a combination of portrait, quotation, map, and chronology - a complete romantic history of each of these dangerous liaisons. This spectacular objet not only evokes the allure of the city, but captures the passion of some of the most celebrated couples who ever strolled its streets Spiral Bound, Oblong.
