Jacques Saoutchik: Maître Carrossier
By Peter Larsen and Ben Erickson
Jacques Saoutchik, Maître Carrossier contains the story of Jacques Saoutchik and his life that spanned eight decades, two world wars, a flight from Imperial Russia, incarceration, the birth of the automobile and its design, the Great Depression, the heyday of the luxury automobile in France and its subsequent annihilation – all set against a backdrop of glittering socialites, artists, demi-mondes and couturiers who populated the chic salons of Paris.
Jacques Saoutchik was one of the greatest artists the coach building industry has ever seen. The book is a three-volume homage to his life and art.
