Great Artists in Close-up: Matisse, Picasso, Miró – As I Knew Them

By Rosamond Bernier

Sinclair-Stevenson 304pp £20 order from our bookshop

Holding a child’s toy tin clicker in her right hand, with a regular snap she commanded the attention of the projectionist who kept up a three-screen slide show.
