Artist Bio: Tamara De Lempicka
Tamara de Lempicka (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."
The most famous painter of the Art Deco period, Tamara de Lempicka (1898 - 1980), was born in Poland and emigrated to the United States as an adult. De Lempicka was a socialite, wife, refugee, mother, and painter. Her portraits, including her self portraits, appealed to the rich because of her bold use of color, unique style, and the sense of elegance that permeated her work.
Diversity in Fine Nude Art
Nude art has remained an essential focus of Western art since the Renaissance. Whether embracing or refashioning classical ideals, artists from the seventeenth century to the present have privileged the nude form and made it an endlessly compelling means of creative expression.
