About this product
- Description<b> As erotic and powerful as the paintings that inspired it. Emma Doghue, author of <i>Room</i>Paris, 1927. One day in July, a young American named Rafaela Fa gets into the car of a coolly dazzling stranger, the Art Deco painter Tamara de Lempicka. Struggling to support herself, Rafaela agrees to model for the artist, a dispossessed Saint Petersburg aristocrat with a murky past. The two become lovers, and Rafaela inspires Tamara s most iconic Jazz Age images, among them her most accomplished and coveted works of art. A season as the painter s muse teaches Rafaela some hard lessons: Tamara is a cocktail of raw hunger and glittering artifice. And all the while, their romantic idyll is threatened by history s darkening tide. A tour de force of historical imagination, <i>The Last Nude</i> is about genius and craft, love and desire, regret and, most of all, hope that can transcend time and circumstance.
