Description

This is the definitive catalogue on the first woman artist to be a glamour star. A cosmopolitan painter and icon of the Art Deco movement, Tamara de Lempicka created images that became the symbols of an era, the crazy 1920s and 1930s. She was possibly that periods most brilliant exponent. Driven by an iron will to achieve, Tamara not only cultivated her artistic talent, he also consciously built an image, that of an elegant and sophisticated woman, the extravagant protagonist of the European high life.show more

Review quote

-Ms. Gioia has delivered a gift for all those who have a passion for art, style, and the great personalities of the 20th century... What is most appealing about this volume is that the intellectual is mixed with the personal, which allows for a very smooth read and segues from a routine biography into a chronicle of an artist and her creativity within her -worlds... At any rate, Tamara de Lempicka: The Queen of the Modern is a book that is destined to become a part of your collection of high quality art books and should be thought of as part memoir and part reference with equal attention paid to both.- New York Journal of Books -This beautiful book is a must-have for all art deco lovers and highlights the life of one of the most modern women of our time.- VidCat.comshow more
