Love, love Big Hats!
Tamara loved them too!
She painted many of her models
with high fashioned hats. I guess because
she was so involved in the fashion world
and Holywood. She painted many of the stars
of her time.
This is a short post as I am totally
burnt out from all the recent surgeries
and trying to get caught up on things.
Tamara 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.
