Sara and Gerald Murphy were prominent Jazz Age figures — they inspired a galaxy of works by their friends, all based on their lives, including F. Scott Fitzgerald’s Tender Is the Night, Ernest Hemingway’s A Moveable Feast, and Picasso’s Woman in White. Now, their life is the subject of a new show on view at the Clinton Academy, “Living Well Is the Best Revenge: A Jazz Age Fable of Sara & Gerald Murphy,” on view until October 10.
