The periodical XXe Siècle was founded in 1938 by Italian-born art historian, writer and publisher Gualtieri di San Lazzaro (1904–1974), who resided and worked in Paris. XXe Siècle consisted of a combination of articles with original works of art by well-known and influential contemporary artists. About 60 issues were published intermittently between 1938 and 1974.
