Surely the greatest art dealer of modern art, Kahnweiler was a German Jew who supported first the Fauves, then Picasso and the Cubists Braque and Gris. Key achievements of his long career included his important critical writings on Modernism, plus first publications of texts by Apollinaire, Max Jacobs, Malraux, and others. The dealer committed himself to the careers of his artists, supplying both stipends and encouragement as a matter of course. Each world war wrecked his business and depleted his friends. Specialists will note the personal details concerning key artistic figures, while general readers will benefit from the opportunity to acquaint themselves with the man and his foibles. By no means a great biography, this study will nonetheless prove useful.
