Tamara de Lempicka’s works (1898-1980)
Tamara de Lempicka was a Polish Art Deco painter. Born into a wealthy and prominent family, her father was a Polish lawyer, her mother, the former Malvina Decler, a Polish socialite. Maria was the middle child with two siblings. She attended boarding school in Lausanne, Switzerland, and spent the winter of 1911 with her grandmother in Italy and the French Riviera, where she was treated to her first taste of the Great Masters of Italian painting. Her distinctive and bold artistic style developed quickly and epitomized the cool yet sensual side of the Art Deco movement. For her, Picasso "embodied the novelty of destruction". She thought that many of the Impressionists drew badly and employed "dirty" colours. De Lempicka technique would be novel, clean, precise, and elegant.
