Tamara de Lempicka


Its been a while since I have posted an artist bio so here’s one today!

„I live life in the margins of society, and the rules of normal society don‘t apply to those who live on the fringe.“

Tamara de Lempicka was a Polish painter who spent her working life in France and the United States. She is best known for her polished Art Deco portraits of aristocrats

 Art Deco, a classical, symmetrical, rectilinear style that reached its high point between 1925-1935. Drew its inspiration from such serious art movements as Cubism, Futurism, and the influence of the Bauhaus. In Paris, it was a dominant art form of the 1920-1930 period. Of all the artists pursuing the style „Arts Decoratifs“, one of the most memorable was Tamara de Lempicka.

Tamara de Lempicka studied art the Academie de la Grande Chaumiere in Montparnasse under Maurice Denis and Andre Lhot.

In 1932, Tamara de Lempicka began showing her work at various galleries in Paris.

In 1925, Tamara de Lempicka had her first major exhibition in Milan, Italy. It is believed that she finished 28 new works in 6 months.

One of the most famous female artists, she still stays in our heart
