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. This beautifully illustrated volume features essays by art historian Deborah Rothschild and such Murphy scholars as Calvin Tomkins, Amanda Vaill, Linda Patterson Miller, Kenneth Silver; curators Dorothy Kosinski and Kenneth Wayne; artist/writer Trevor Winkfield; musicologist Olivia Mattis; and poet and author William Jay Smith.

"Gerald and Sara Murphy took Paris by storm in the 1920s, inserting themselves into the avant-garde circles of dance, music, and art. Lively and engaging, Making It New sheds new light on the European fascination with the Murphys and provides key insights into their life and art."—Cécile Whiting, author of Pop L.A.: Art and the City in the 1960s
"By telling and retelling the story of the Murphys from various viewpoints, Making It New aims to be the first comprehensive study of their contribution to Modern Art. This book should be of wide interest to both scholars and general readers."—Elizabeth Hutton Turner, author of Americans in Paris: Man Ray, Gerald Murphy, Stuart Davis, Alexander Calder
