Is the gift from a secret admirer from across the room or...does
she know him?... or are they strangers? Is he trying to win her over with
"The Gift" or is it an apology? Lovers or Strangers? I'll leave it up to you.
Comments are appreciated
Inspired by Tamara de Lempicka
The woman in yellow, the man in blue, these are two new painting
of Tamara de Lempicka's that I have just come across and have
never seen before. I had the idea for this painting immediately.
I just imagined him looking at her from across the room and
wanted him to reflect in the mirror behind her so you could see
where her focus is. Of course I had to add some of Tamara's beautiful
Calli lilies from another of her paintings.
Tamara de Lempicka (Łempicka) (May 16, 1898–March 18, 1980), born Maria Górska in Warsaw, in partitioned Poland.was a Polish Art Deco painter and "the first woman artist to be a glamour star."
In Paris, the Lempickas lived for a while from the sale of family jewels. Tadeusz proved unwilling or unable to find suitable work, which added to the domestic strain, while Maria gave birth to Kizette de Lempicka.
