It is unusual for a female artist to achieve any standing in an art world dominated by men, but Tamara de Lempicka's clear, strong style often called ‘Soft Cubism’ has earned her a place at the top of the Art Deco movement. Born in Poland in 1898, she later fled to Paris in 1917 during the Russian Revolution where she took up art to earn a living. Even though Lempicka's strong use of color and sharp edged forms produced very solid, powerful figures, De Lempicka’s technique portrayed more a fresh yet elegant view of her subjects. As taken as I was with her art, I was as much intrigued with her personal life. A work of art in itself! Click HERE to read a short bio of this very creative soul!
