Tamara Lempicka: Polish Art Deco Painter, First Artist/”Glamour Star”

Painting by Tamara Lempicka

Tamara Łempicka, commonly known as #Tamara De Lempicka (16 May 1898 – 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 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. Source: Wikipedia.

I bet a lot of people would have guessed Dublin would be number one, based on its reputation.
