Tamara de Lempicka
Tamara Lempicka, commonly known as Tamara de Lempicka
(16 May 1898, Warsaw, Poland – 18 March 1980
was a Polish Art Deco painter and "the first woman artist to be a glamour star".
Influenced by Cubism, Lempicka became the leading representative of the Art Deco style across two continents,
a favorite artist of many Hollywood
stars, referred to as 'the baroness with a brush'.
She was the most fashionable portrait painter of her generation among the haute bourgeoisie and aristocracy,
painting duchesses and grand dukes and socialites.
Through her network of friends, she was also able to display her paintings in the most elite salons of the era.
Lempicka was criticized as well as admired for her 'perverse Ingrism',
referring to her modern restatement of the master Jean Auguste Dominique Ingres,
as displayed in her work Group of Four Nudes (1925) among other studies.
