Modern Figurative Paintings:
The Paris Connection


Martin Wolpert & Jeffrey Winter

From the late 19th century until World War Two, Paris was the center of the art world. Artists and intellectuals from around the globe descended on Paris, drawn by the atmosphere of creative freedom established by the French Impressionists. Because of the Impressionists’ innovations the direction of art had changed forever, the times were ripe for another Renaissance.

This book produced by Martin Wolpert and Jeffrey Winter has been a labor of love many years in the making. The authors have accumulated biographies and images of paintings of more than one hundred and fifty artists from this period, most of them completely overlooked by scholars and art historians. Paris is the thread that runs through this collection. All of the artists in the book worked, studied and exhibited there between 1890 and 1939. They painted images of the populace at work and at play in bars, jazz clubs and cabarets. They painted portraits, nudes and scenes of their own studios. The book features art that captures the ambiance of the times.

From La Belle Époque, the Postimpressionists, the Cubists and the School of Paris, these men and women with the spirit of modernism in their blood produced a body of work that is extraordinary in the history of art. For the collector this book will be an invaluable tool for understanding the art of this period. By documenting artists who have not been written about for many years, the authors have offered the collector an insight into paintings by accomplished artists which can still be acquired at equitable prices.

Martin Wolpert has been a dealer and collector of fine art for more than thirty years. He worked much of this time with Mike Iorg , his wife and partner. Paris became their second home as they searched the flea markets and galleries, auctions, attics and warehouses on a journey of discovery. It was a passionate journey of acquiring and exhibiting exceptional works of art; mostly by artists with unfamiliar names, artists who in their lifetimes had successful careers, but for a variety of reasons were overlooked by historians.

Jeffrey Winter joined this adventure in 2000. He completed his Bachelors Degree at Swarthmore College after seven years in the U.S. Navy working as a Russian linguist. He eventually settled in Southern California where he met his wife, a painter named Ann Bridges. After becoming associated with Papillon Gallery, Mr. Winter became an integral part of acquiring and exhibiting the works of art; traveling to New York, San Francisco, Paris, Lyon, Brussels, and Budapest and working in every aspect of the process.

Together Wolpert and Winter have used the vast library and archives of Papillon Gallery to compile the information and images for this book.
