SOME OF MY LIVES
A Scrapbook Memoir
By Rosamond Bernier
Published by Farrar, Straus and Giroux
Every year, the renowned lectures given by Rosamond Bernier at the Metropolitan Museum of Art are sold out months in advance. Her lectures are really conversations, intimate chats about artists, their friends, their society and their work. Now your chair at home can become the seat you couldn't buy in New York.
These DVD's are the actual performances filmed as they were given Live At The Met.As co-founder of L'Oeil, the influential vanguard art magazine published in Paris, Bernier became friendly with Matisse, Picasso, Miro, Leger, Braque, ManRay, Max Ernst, Duchamp and many other modern masters. These lectures have a depth that only a firsthand acquaintance would allow.
THE PICASSO I KNEW
Rosamond Bernier's visit to meet with Picasso in Paris developed into a mutual admiration through showing her work that he had not shown to anyone else and a shared camaraderie with Picasso's closest friends and family.
THE PICASSO NOBODY KNEW
Picasso never threw anything away. There were works by the thousand: paintings, drawings, sculptures, constructions, prints and sketch books. This was the Picasso that nobody had known.
