A monograph on the French artist Maurice Utrillo (1883-1955), known for his postcard-like scenes of Montmartre in the early decades of the twentieth century, when the area was inhabited by Picasso and the School of Paris. Utrillo was the son of the artist and model Suzanne Valadon, and grew up in Montmartre. A close friend of Modigliani, the two bohemians experimented "with ether, hashish and women, " according to the author of this book. He continued to suffer from alcoholism and mental illness, despite the success he achieved from around 1910 onwards. Utrillo died in 1955, four years after this book was published.
