Book Discussion: The Last Nude by Ellis Avery
In 1927 Paris a young American named Rafaela Fano agrees to model for the Art Deco painter Tamara de Lempicka. The two become lovers, and Rafaela inspires Tamara’s most iconic Jazz Age images. Tamara is a cocktail of raw hunger and glittering artifice and a season as the painter’s muse teaches Rafaela some hard lessons. Inspired by real events in de Lempicka's history, The Last Nude is a stunning story of love, sexual obsession, treachery, and tragedy.
