About this title


From Baroness Tamara de Lempicka's last successful one-person show in San Francisco from 1941 to 1972, when the Galerie de Luxembourg in Paris hosted a retrospective of her works between 1925 and 1935, more than 30 years of silence passed over an artist who, between the two world wars enjoyed great notoriety and the favour of the haute societe: for her beauty and brilliant life, not less than for her portraits of aristocrats and the VIPs of the time and, more generally, for her painting. Tamara de Lempicka's work - greatly influenced by cubism and art deco, and nurtured on society portraiture and the figurative culture of the time - is a hybrid of high and low culture, which constitutes her unique originality and which makes her work a reflection of a society and a period. This large-format book provides a look at Tamara de Lempicka, using the pieces included in a 1994 exhibition of her work at The Montreal Museum of Fine Arts. It includes essays on her life, her influences and her art, along with reproductions of her work - the majority from her most successful period (the 1920s and 1930s) - including her famed society portraits, nudes, landscapes and later pietistic works.
