1922. First Edition . LASARD, Lou-Lou Albert. Montmartre. [Potsdam]: Kiepenheuer, circa 1925. Large oblong folio (24 by 19 inches), 12 lithographs, matted and loose as issued in publisher's half cloth portfolio with lithographed boards. $12,500.Rare first edition of this lovely portfolio of large original lithographs of Montmartre society in the 1920s, each one matted and signed in pencil by the artist, Lou-Lou Albert Lasard.Lou-Lou Albert Lasard was an integral member of the circle of artists known as ""Der Blaue Reiter,"" founded in Berlin by a number of Russian emigrants, including Wassily Kandinsky, Alexej von Jawlensky, Marianne von Werefkin, and native German artists, such as Franz Marc, August Macke and Gabriele M√ľnter. From 1914-16 she was linked romantically with Rainer Maria Rilke. In 1928, she returned to Paris and was part of the Montparnasse art society, where she befriended Henri Matisse, Alberto Giacometti, and Robert Delaunay. Lasard's love for Paris and the world of variety shows is highlighted in the 12 lithographs of this exquisite portfolio. In 1925 Lasard was featured in an acclaimed exhibition in the Berlin branch of the noted Galerie Alfred Flechtheim, and the prints in this portfolio were issued in a very limited number to accompany that exhibit. In May, 1940, she and her daughter were interned by the Nazis at the Gurs concentration camp in southwestern France, but were later released. Some wear to flaps of original portfolio. Lithographs clean and fine, with bold signatures. A lovely copy in extremely good condition, rare and most desirable complete.
