Harry N. Abrams New York 2000 First Edition  Hardcover With 128 illustrations, 55 plates in full colour, A fine copy in fine dustjacket. This book re-creates the charmed life of two American expatriates in France at the turn of the 20th century -- the noted artist Walter Gay and his wife, Matilda, whose glittering social circle included John Singer Sargent, Edith Wharton, Henry James, and many other artists and aristocrats. Narrated by witty excerpts from Matilda Gay's recently discovered journal, and richly illustrated with Walter Gay's remarkable, sought-after paintings of the rooms in which they and their friends lived, in Paris, Fontainebleau, Venice, and elsewhere, A Charmed Couple offers an intimate glimpse of a long-gone social milieu whose hold on the popular imagination continues to this day. ; 270 x 220mm; 239 pages Fine in Fine dust jacket
