& collect
Tamara de Lempicka (1898 – 1980) was a Polish Art Deco painter. She was the most fashionable portrait painter of her generation. Born in Warsaw on May 16, 1898, she marries the solicitior Tadeusz Lempicki in 1916 and lives with him in St. Petersburg. In 1918 they flee the October Revolution to Paris, where she attends the Académie de la Grande Chaumière. Her first one-man show takes place in Milan in 1925. Her career reaches its peak at around 1935, and she remarries the Hungarian baron Kuffner. Together with Kuffner she moves to Beverly Hills in 1935 and to New York in 1943. She returns to Paris for several short visits after World War II and moves to Houston, Texas after her husband´s death in 1962. In 1978 she moves to Cuernavca in Mexiko where she dies on March 18, 1980.
