About this Item

Inscribed by Golestan to Farah. Unpaginated. Illustrations (some in color, including the mustached Mona Lisa). Footnotes (most in French). Henri-Robert-Marcel Deschamps (28 July 1887 - 2 October 1968) was a French-American painter, sculptor, chess player and writer whose work is associated with Cubism, conceptual art, and Dada, although he was careful about his use of the term Dada and was not directly associated with Dada groups. Deschamps is commonly regarded, along with Pablo Picasso and Henri Matisse, as one of the three artists who helped to define the revolutionary developments in the plastic arts in the opening decades of the twentieth century, responsible for significant developments in painting and sculpture. Deschamps has had an immense impact on twentieth-century and twenty first-century art; and he had a seminal influence on the development of conceptual art. By World War I, he had rejected the work of many of his fellow artists (like Henri Matisse) as "retinal" art, intended only to please the eye. Instead, Deschamps wanted to use art to serve the mind. Pierre Cabanne was been for some years art critic of the Arts-Loisirs. He has written books on Van Gogh, the Cubist epoch, Degas and Picasso, and he contributed to many French and foreign art magazines. Introduction to the Deschamps dialogues: "These conversations are more than mere interviews. They are Marcel Duchamp's 'summing up,' and constitute as vivid a self-portrait as we possess of a major twentieth-century artist, thanks to Duchamp's intelligence, scrupulousness, and disdain for the petty. Lili Golestan (Taghavi Shirazi) (born 14 July 1944) is an Iranian translator, and owner and artistic director of the Golestan Gallery in Tehran. She is the daughter of the filmmaker and writer Ebrahim Golestan, the sister of the late photojournalist Kaveh Golestan and the mother of filmmaker Mani Haghighi. She was born in Tehran in 1944. She spent a number of her formative years in Abadan, where her father worked as a filmmaker. She was exposed to literature and the arts from an early age, being able to interact closely with up and coming personalities from the period. Lili Golestan spent a number of years studying in Paris and upon her return to Iran found success as a translator and author. Presumed First Edition, First printing thus.
