This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: The years that this book means to bring back to life are bathed in an enchanting, uncertain light, so faint and yet so bright that it may have been only a dream. Their unreal tones, like some shimmering landscape in a film where disaster lies in wait, light up that period between the end of the Great War and the dark days of the 1930s, between the belle epoque and the final summers of the Roaring Twenties. The French Riviera was the place to be during the twenties and early thirties. Artists and writers from all over the world came to invent a new way of life--Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald, Gerald and Sara Murphy, Picasso, Picabia, Stravinsky, Cocteau, Diaghilev, Eileen Gray, Anna de Noailles and Hemingway, to name a few. A photobiography of this happy time, French Riviera revives the now-legendary story of these mythic personalities living in a world divided between a thirst for creation, the hunt for happiness and the ominously approaching violence of World War II.

Riassunto: The French Riviera was the place to be during the twenties and early thirties. Artists and writers from all over the world came to "invent" a new way of life. Their names were Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald, Gerald and Sara Murphy, Picasso, Man Ray, Picabia, Stravinsky, Coco Chanel, Cocteau, Edith Wharton, Diaghilev, Eileen Gray, Anna de Noailles, and Hemingway, to name a few. French Riviera is a photobiography of this happy time. It revives the now legendary story of these mythic personalities living in a world divided between a thirst for creation, the hunt for happiness, and the ominously approaching violence of World War II. Thanks to the extraordinary personal archives that are revealed in these pages for the first time, you will witness firsthand the lifestyles and the omnipresent artwork of some of the most important artists of the 20th century.
