1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"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. The Murphys, who endeavored to make art of their own lives, embodied a predominant theme of the 1920s: life as one would like it to be versus life as it is." "Making It New: The Art and Style of Sara and Gerald Murphy is a collection of essays examining through images and text the Murphys' influence on a remarkable constellation of artists. It accompanies an exhibition organized by the Williams College Museum of Art and examines, from multiple points of view, the Murphys' artistically adventurous way of life and their ability to confer distinction on everything, from the inconsequential to the grand. The book also explains how this period of enchantment ended and explores Gerald Murphy's abbreviated career as a painter, his artistic legacy, and the complex nature of his motivation and vision."--BOOK JACKET

Papers by Richard David Cowan ( )
in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The papers consist of juvenilia, diaries, sketches and drawings, photographs, and letters received, plus Cowan's letters to his lover and benefactor, Stewart Mitchell (and Mitchell's aunt, Georgine Holmes Thomas), with condolences and other material preserved by Mitchell relating to Cowan's suicide, Oct. 24, 1939. A two-volume diary, 1927-1934 (with gaps), begun as a matriculating student at Cornell and concluded, after graduation, in Boston, details the process of Cowan's personal "coming out" as a gay man and sheds light on gay life during the mid-1930s in Boston. Correspondence with Gerald and Sara Murphy began after Cowan's 1934 summer trip to Europe, when Cowan and his companion, Dudley Poore, were invited to sail from Antibes on the Murphy's yacht. An affectionate friendship developed between Cowan, a landscape architect, and Murphy, in which they collaborated on selecting plantings for Murphy's estate in East Hampton, Long Island
