Tamara de Lempicka
Tamara de Lempicka, born in Warsaw, is as well known
for her extraordinary beauty as she is for her paintings.
In 1917, the Russian Revolution forced Tamara and her
husband to flee Poland and settle in Paris.
It was in Paris that she emerged as one of the foremost
painters of the Art Deco period. Her works resemble
advertisements from the 1920´s and 1930`s and the
Golden Era of Hollywood in the 1940`s The subjects
painted by this fiercely independent woman included
wealthy, intelligent and sometimes the most unusual
characters as well as her favorite calla lilies.
She moved to the US in the 1930`s. Lempicka´s paintings
are in private and museum collections worldwide. She is
being rediscovered by new audiences in the recent
museum exhibitions in San Francisco, Boston, London
