The story of Julian and his friends’ artistic endeavors is inspired by a harrowing and little-known historical truth: the official Nazi exhibition of “Degenerate Art,” which opened in Munich on July 19, 1937, one day after the first Great German Art Exhibition. Lisa Barr’s unrelenting prose brings to life artists who were made to endure miserable oppression—sometimes death—under the brutal Nazi regime. This is a novel of suspense, love, mystery, and, above all, the power of art.
FUGITIVE COLORS by Lisa Barr is a compelling Historical Fiction set in 1930’s. Meet Julian Klein, an American artist in Paris, who has turned spy. This is a compelling and complex story of betrayal, friendship,mystery, love, passion,politics, suffering and suspense set against a backdrop of Europe prior to World War II, just days before. A roller-coaster ride of oppression, brutality of the Nazi regime, and artistic endeavors. “Fugitive Colors” was inspired by historical truth, it a riveting tale of heartbreak and love. An emotional charged story from beginning to end. Well written with depth and descriptions with engaging characters as well as a story full of heartbreak and love. Well done!
