The French Riviera In The 1920s and early ‘30s was the center of creativity. Artists and writers from the far reaches of the world gathered to fashion a new way of life—among them Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald, Gerald and Sara Murphy, Picasso, Picabia, Stravinsky, Cocteau, Diaghilev, and Anna de Noailles. A photo biography of this carefree era revitalizes the now-legendary tale of these mythic personalities caught between a desire for creation, the quest for happiness, and the looming darkness of World War II. With extraordinary images taken from personal archives, the pages of this book depict firsthand the lifestyles and artwork of some of the most influential artists of the 20th century.
