Gerald Clery Murphy (March 25, 1888 – October 17, 1964) and Sara Sherman Wiborg (November 7, 1883 – October 10, 1975) were wealthy American expatriates whose opulent lifestyle helped to create the artistic social scene of the French Riviera during the 1920s. Their influence was seen in the works of a number of writers and artists. Perhaps most notably they were used as models for Nicole and Dick Diver, the main characters of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel Tender Is the Night.1
