“Making It New: The Art and Style of Sara and Gerald Murphy”
Williams College Museum
“Making It New: The Art and Style of Sara & Gerald Murphy,” at the Williams College Museum of Art, is an immensely satisfying show about fine, complicated people who loved life in exemplary ways, in superb company, and suffered misfortune.” Peter Schjedahl in The New Yorker
This was the first exhibit to explore Sara and Gerald’s relationships with some of the pivotal figures of Paris of the 1920s. Their intimate circle included F. Scott Fitzgerald, Ernest Hemingway, Pablo Picasso, Cole Porter, Man Ray, and Dorothy Parker. The exhibit also featured Gerald’s seven surviving canvases along with paintings, watercolors, drawings, and photographs by artists within his circle.
