Fashion designer Jacques Doucet (1853-1929) dressed the women of the high society, but was above all an art lover and one of the main collectors of his time. He surrounded himself with the best advisers, André Breton, André Suarès or Pierre Reverdy and, thanks to his immense wealth, bought the most beautiful works.
He began with a 18th art collection, the sale of which got a lot of attention. Doucet was also a passionate of Impressionism and recognized the importance of the Avant-Gardes: he was the first owner of the Demoiselles d'Avignon, and owned also paintings by Duchamp, Picabia, Matisse and Miró, furniture by Legrain and Iribe, or bindings by Rose Adler.
Doucet was also a generous patron of the arts, and gathered the documentation allowing to further everybody's knowledge. He created in Paris two of the biggest libraries of his time: the bibliothèque d'Art et d'Archéologie et the Bibliothèque littéraire.
This book reconstructs these today-scattered collections which testify of a both painful and enthusiastic era.
