A cosmopolitan painter and icon of the art deco movement, Tamara de Lempicka created images that became the symbols of. the "crazy" 1920s and 1930s. She was possibly that period's most brilliant exponent, cultivating her talent and building an image of an elegant and sophisticated woman... the extravagant protagonist of the European high life.

Through scrupulous scientific analysis of 120 paintings and works on paper, this beautiful publication recreates the artistic atmosphere of the time, suggesting unique parallels and comparisons with contemporary works. It also offers us a cross section of the artist's life
which was filled with glamour and marked by the historical events of the 20th century.

This beautiful book is a must-have for all art deco lovers and highlights the life of one of the most modern women of our time.
