William N. Copley: An American Close to Paris

Longpont-sur-Orge

Edited by Cay Sophie Rabinowitz, Nick Olney.

Inside the home of William Copley, creator of madcap narrative paintings, and also the consummate art collector and patron.

In the 1950s, William N. Copley (1919–96) and his partner Noma Rathner moved to Longpont-sur- Orge on the outskirts of Paris, where he engaged the British modernist architects Jane Drew and Maxwell Fry to design a small studio of local stone, with a sweeping curved roof, loft and skylight. This book features a series of photographic collaborations by Copley and Jaqueline Hyde wherein the ostensible subject—a painting by Copley, perfectly exposed and ready to be cropped for reproduction—also reveals a broader scene. Behind each Copley painting are works from his collection by Wifredo Lam, Joseph Cornell, Max Ernst, Man Ray and Francis Picabia, Mexican folk objects in shelves with stacks of books ranging from Mad magazine to surveys of Pre-Colombian and Cycladic art. The book also includes a selection of little-known photographs by Man Ray of the home interior and gatherings at Longpont, and never-before-published ephemera, from architectural renderings by Jane Drew to seating charts kept by Noma Rathner. All this surrounds and gives context to each painting Copley made there, situated for the camera’s lens in the center of it all. This first book about Copley’s home in Longpont invites readers and viewers to enter the residence as a thrilling avant-garde nexus.
