The…

Tamara de Lempicka

Suite…

At… the…

"In Memory Of Tamara De Lempicka"... by Wirtuozo Maciej Zumirski...Grand Hotel et de Milan

Was… restful…

Once again… I am transported to that moment in time… when one comes “face à face“… so to speak with an icon… “l’esprit Lempicka“… by staying in the very suite she stayed in… which was named after her…

Memorable…

Visiting… the exhibition…

Tamara de Lempicka

The Queenof Art Deco“… at the…

Pinacothèque 2

Rue Vignon…

Paris 9eme…

Tamara

La belle Polonaise“…

The cool… enigmatic beauty…

Riveted…

Mesmerized…

The evolution of the movement known as Art Nouveau… just before WWI… metamorphosed into the less sophisticated style, the geometric design known as… Art Deco… of which Tamara was a master.

Tamara de Lempicka… born Maria Gorska in Warsaw, Poland… was a Polish Art Deco painter and “the first women artist to be a glamour star“…

She was known for being thrifty with facts… like her favourite star Greta Garbo… with an “abundance of mysterious silences…”

An… enigma…

Beguiling… charming…

Aristocratic…

"The Beautiful Rafaëla"... by Tamara de Lempicka...

But above all… a free spirit…

Her style in painting… which was influenced by Ingres and Picasso… (whom she met)… is unique bold and artistic… described as “soft cubism”… even “synthetic cubism”… by some…

Lempicka… a renowned bisexual… unlike Marlene Dietrich who loved wearing masculine clothes… epitomized feminine sexuality…

She dripped with glamour… heavily draped in fur… drenched with jewellery…

"Adam and Eve"... by Tamara de Lempicka...Her technique in painting… was clean… precise… sensuous… and elegant…

Lempicka embodied the novel relationship of her era… between man and machine… steel and flesh…

Her auto-portrait in the silver Buggati car wrapped in a green scarf, wearing gloves… epitomizes the emancipated women of that period… she did it to perfection…

Ambiguous… free…

Atomboy“…

A… legend…

The New York times described her as… “the steely eyed goddess of the automobile age“…

Tamara de Lempicka

Modern… ambitious…

Inaccessible…

A… formidable being…

A model… of elegance…

Beauty…

A… blond apparition…

Tall… slender…

Tamara de Lempicka...She… seduced…

She… bewitched…

Just… like her…

Amazing…

Paintings…

She… was…

Still is… a…

Fascination…
