Charlotte Wankel og L'esprit Nouveau

By Hilde Mørch

 

Charlotte Wankel (1888 – 1969) was one of the Norwegian pupils of Henri Matisse at his legendary Académie Matisse in Paris from 1910. During her years in Paris Wankel became a part of the Avant-Garde movement and exhibited with artists such as Pablo Picasso, Juan Gris, Fernand Léger and Amedée Ozenfant, whom she also studied for.

 

This book is the first comprehensive monograph devoted to Wankel's life and work and explores her contribution to Norwegian and international modernism.
