Readers will discover the dramatic lives of the legendary artists, writers, actors, and politicians who frequented the world's most luxurious resort during its golden age. In 21 vivid chapters, Baxter introduces the iconic figures indelibly linked to the South of France—artist Henri Matisse, writer F. Scott Fitzgerald, Coco Chanel, and many more.
The Artistic Draw of France by Rick Steves
Along the way, Baxter takes readers where few people ever get to go: the alluring world of the perfume industry, into the cars and casinos of Monte Carlo, behind-the-scenes at the Cannes Film Festival, to the villa where Picasso and Cocteau smoked opium, and to the hotel where Joseph Kennedy had an affair with Marlene Dietrich. These luminaries celebrated life and created art amid paradise and this book is the ultimate guide to the Riviera's golden age. Buy book on Amazon. Like Us Facebook.
