Making It New: The Art and Style of Sara and Gerald Murphy by Deborah Rothschild

Paris in the 1920s - art, literature, the Lost Generation. The glitterati who inhabited this legendary world - F. Scott Fitzgerald, Ernest Hemingway, Pablo Picasso, Cole Porter, Man Ray, Dorothy Parker, and a host of others - were members of an intimate circle centered around Sara and Gerald Murphy. "Making It New: The Art and Style of Sara and Gerald Murphy" is a captivating and absorbing collection of essays examining through images and text the Murphys' influence on a remarkable constellation of artists. The book also explores Gerald Murphy's abbreviated career as a painter, his artistic legacy, and the complex nature of his motivation and vision.
