Product Description:

strongFreewheeling/strong Tamara de Lempicka icon of Art DecostrongTamara de Lempicka/strong (1896 1980) lived art in the fast lane. With an appetite for glamour and fame as much as Left Bank bohemianism she fled her native Russia after the Bolshevik revolution and set about taking Paris by storm. Her prolific monumental oeuvre remains strongone of the most vivid documents of 1920s Art Deco/strong. De Lempicka s style deployed cool colors and tight post-cubist forms into an at once neoclassical and voluptuous figuration. Her subjects often nude are sensual aloof and powerful. Bedecked in strongseductive light and textures/strong they command our attention but typically avert their gaze with an aspect of haughty grandeur. Her subjects include both high-society patrons and progressive portraits of emancipated and lesbian women such as emWomen Bathing Portrait of Suzy Solidor/em and her strongnotorious emSelf-Portrait in the Green Bugatti/em/strong showing Tamara behind the wheel. A vision of speed sophistication and independence the work was commissioned for the cover of German magazine emDie Dame/em which defined de Lempicka as the strongepitome of women s liberation/strong. Through some of her finest most compelling portraits this introduction to de Lempicka explores the artist s unique visual language and its privileged place not only in the annals of interwar art but also in the history of female artists and in our strongcollective consciousness of the Roaring Twenties/strong.strongAbout the series: /strongEach book in TASCHEN s Basic Art series features: ul li a detailed chronological summary of the life and oeuvre of the artist covering his or her cultural and historical importance li a concise biography li approximately 100 illustrations with explanatory captions/ul'
