After Tamara de Lempicka
14 x 14 inches Oil Painting on Canvas
Art within Art Series
This was a fun painting but I got so much into detail
that it took a very long time to finish. Loved every minute if it!!
The figures had so many changes to my taste that they really
look nothing like de Lempicka's. The curtains are also from
another de Lempicka painting and I thought they would
look great with this composition.
I painted on Valentines Day and for all the Lovers out
there. I thought it was a nice twist that the female was serenading
the man. The painting on the wall is one of my favorites of
Tamara's and thought the kiss was a good choice for this piece.
Comments are appreciated
Tamara de Lempicka (Łempicka) (May 16, 1898–March 18, 1980), born Maria Górska in Warsaw, in was a Polish Art Deco painter and "the first woman artist to be a glamor star."
Lempicka is best known for her Art Deco-styled portraits. Sexy, bedroom-eyed women in stylish dress are rendered in haunting poses. Perhaps it was her own dramatic life mirrored in her art. Married twice to wealthy, she moved from her native Poland to Russia, and then to Paris. In 1918, she studied painting at the Academe de la Grand Chaumiere, and was privately tutored by Maurice Denis. In 1925 she exhibited her works at the first Art Deco show in Paris. She moved to America in 1939 with her second husband, Baron Raoul Kuffner. Her works appeared exclusively at many galleries and museums, but her artistic output decreased. In 1960 she changed her style to abstract art and began creating works with a spatula. After her husband died in 1962 she ceased painting and moved to Mexico.
