MAKING IT NEW: THE ART AND STYLE OF SARA AND GERALD MURPHY

by Deborah Rothschild

Illustrated by Gerald Murphy

Published by University of California Press. 1st. 2008

Nearly fine condition in a slightly better than very good dustwrapper. Published as the catalogue for the exhibition of the same name which ran from 2007 to 2008. This is a captivating and absorbing collection of essays examining through images and text the Murphys' influence on a remarkable constellation of artists. 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. Featuring art by Gerald Murphy, Pablo Picasso, Fernand Leger, Man Ray, and many others in addition to numerous documentary photos. Red cloth boards, yellow title to spine, blind title to front.

Frontis is slightly grubby. Contents otherwise clean. Pictorial dustwrapper is a little scuffed to rear panel.
