 Connoisseur's - de Lempicka Exhibit Grand Opening

12 x 22 inches
Oil on Canvas

Such a fun painting to do but a  a lot of

The blue background required several layers of glazes
to achieve the depth of darkness around the windows.
Another cool fashion painting for my series.

Tamara de Lempicka (Łempicka) (May 16, 1898–March 18, 1980), born Maria Górska  in Poland and was and Art Deco painter was a painter and "the first woman artist to be a glamour star."

Born into a wealthy and prominent family, her father was a Polish lawyer, and her mother, a Polish socialite. Tamara was the middle child with two siblings. She attended boarding school in Switzerlandand spent the winter of 1911 with her grandmother in Italy and the French Riviera, where she was treated to her first taste of the Great Masters of Italian painting.
 In 1912, her parents divorced and Tamara went to live with her wealthy Aunt Stefa in Russia. When her mother remarried, she became determined to break away to a life of her own.
In 1913, at the age of fifteen, while attending the opera, Tamara spotted the man she became determined to marry. She promoted her campaign through her well-connected uncle and in 1916 she married Tadeusz Łempicki in St. Petersburg—a well-known ladies' man, gadabout, and lawyer by title, who was tempted by the significant dowry.
