Presentation

“Among a hundred paintings, you could recognize mine, my goal was: Do not copy.

Create a new style, … colors light and bright, return to elegance in my models.”

In the Art Deco age the artists used a revitalized decorative language – the elegant forms captured the spirit of the new era full of contradictions. The style is surprising for its reflection of the aesthetic attitudes of Renaissance, classicism and romanticism. Having turned both her art and life into Art Deco-styled reality, Tamara de Lempicka, no doubt, became an icon for Art Deco.
