Description
(Winner of the 2013 Stonewall Book Award–Barbara Gittings Literature Award) On a July day in 1927 Paris, a young American named Rafaela Fano gets into the car of a coolly dazzling stranger, the notorious art deco painter Tamara de Lempicka. Struggling to support herself, Rafaela agrees to model for Tamara, a dispossessed Saint Petersburg aristocrat with a murky past. The two become lovers, and Rafaela inspires Tamara's most iconic Jazz Age images. But a season as the painter's muse teaches Rafaela some hard lessons, in a novel "as erotic and powerful as the paintings that inspired it" (Emma Donoghue).

"The Last Nude carries us through one of the most fascinating and turbulent periods in modern art, and into the minds and bodies of two of art history's most riveting heroines. With prose and imagery that are both lyrical and unabashedly sensual, Ellis Avery breathes life and depth into famed artist's muse Rafaela, tracing her rocky but thrilling path from lost girl to Lost Generation icon, and laying bare acts of love, desire and betrayal with all the assuredness of a master artist herself."—Jennifer Cody Epstein
