Tamara de Lempicka: The Darling of Art Deco - Art History SchoolVote
Please subscribe to this channel. Learn about the life of Polish artist Tamara de Lempicka in this Tamara de Lempicka biography. The artist Tamara de Lempicka led an extraordinary life. Imagine Paris in the 1920’s, the Roaring Twenties. It is the height of the jazz age, Paris is the centre of modernism in art and design and after the horrors of the 1st World War, society is changing fast. It is more egalitarian and the French along with everyone else, is ready to party. Enter a young Polish refugee from Russia, a modern woman, a larger-than-life character, a libertine and social climber destined to make her mark. Her paintings, Cubist inspired, combined the traditions of Ingres and Caravaggio with lavish decoration and the style and sophistication of her sitters. This artist, who named herself Tamara de Lempicka, epitomised the glamourous era of Art Deco during the 1920’s and 1930’s.
Born in Warsaw in 1898 as Tamara Rozalia Gurwik-Gorska , Tamara de Lempicka painted her most famous work, Autoportrait - Girl in the Green Bugatti in 1927. She died in Mexico in 1980.
