Tamara de Lempicka
"The Icon of Art Deco," "Femme Fatale of the Twenties," "Goddess of the Automobile Age": these are the alternate names of Tamara de Lempicka (1898-1980). Her dazzling works speak for the charm of a glamorous artist.
The Warsaw-born artist became famous for her cool-erotic portraits of members of the Paris Haute Volée. Tamara de Lempicka's has dominated the staging of Art Déco of the 20s and 30s like no one else. The art historian Jean-Paul Bouillon has called her style with a quote from a poem by Henry de Montherlant "a last happy moment" before upheaval and disaster.
Today, the artist is experiencing a deserved renaissance: in a time when the questions of style are becoming increasingly taboo, the encounter with her pictures equals to a timeless, delightful satisfaction.
