Tamara Lempicka (1898-1980), also known as Tamara de Lempicka, was a Polish painter who lived in France and the United States for most of her career. Her polished Art Deco portraits of nobles and the wealthy, as well as her highly stylised paintings of nudes, among her most well-known works. Lempicka was born in Warsaw and temporarily lived in Saint Petersburg, where she married a distinguished Polish lawyer before moving to Paris. Maurice Denis and André Lhote taught her painting. Her style was a mix of late, refined cubism and neoclassicism, with a strong influence from Jean-Dominique Ingres' work. Between the wars, she was an active participant in the creative and social life of Paris. Baron Raoul Kuffner, a wealthy art collector from the old Austro-Hungarian Empire, took her in as his mistress in 1928. Following the death of his wife in 1933, the Baron married Lempicka in 1934, and she became known as "The Baroness with a Brush" in the press. She and her husband relocated to the United States when World War II broke out in 1939, where she produced celebrity portraits, still lifes, and abstract works in the 1960s. After WWII, her art fell out of favour, but with the rediscovery of Art Deco in the late 1960s, it resurfaced. In 1974, she relocated to Mexico, where she died in 1980. Her ashes were scattered over the Popocatépetl volcano at her request. Tamara de Lempicka's oil-on-panel painting ‘Adam and Eve’ was completed in 1932. It's decorated in the Art Deco style and features a male nude embracing a female nude holding an apple. Skyscrapers are stylised in the background. The original artwork, which measures 116 by 73 cm, is held in a private collection. This Art Deco Print comes in Very Good Original Condition and with Ornate Gilded Frame.
