sara and gerald murphy

A show featuring the art of Sara and Gerald Murphy will be on view at the Yale University Art Gallery starting in late February. The couple, best known as the inspiration for F. Scott Fitzgerald's Tender Is The Night, befriended all of the major artists, writers, musicians and actors of the 1920s. Gerald, a painter whose oeuvre consisted of 14 paintings, influenced everyone from Picasso to Man Ray. All 7 remaining pieces in existence are being shown, along with personal letters and documentary films. It is a chance to see firsthand the work of this early modernist pioneer.
