Stock Description

Josephine Baker, the Jazz Age, African-American performers in 1920s Paris -- all are vividly captured in French artist Paul Colin's limited-edition portfolio of 45 lithographs titled Le Tumulte noir. First published in 1927, Colin's work evokes in brilliant colors and energetic lines the uproar black Americans created in music and dance in Paris after World War I.

This new book re-creates the look and feel of Colin's Art Deco masterwork by reproducing, in large colorplates, all of the lithographs, as well as the original preface by Rip (satirist George Thenon) and Josephine Baker's own handwritten commentary.

In a new introduction to the portfolio, scholars Henry Louis Gates, Jr., and Karen C. C. Dalton celebrate those spirited times and the woman who, clad in next to nothing and dancing the Charleston, took a city by storm.
