Join the Art Deco Society of New York and Marisa de Lempicka for a very special, online illustrated talk celebrating the life and legacy of her great-grandmother, the renowned and trailblazing artist, Tamara de Lempicka.

 

In this exciting web-based event Marisa will share stunning images of the remarkable artist and her pioneering work that show how Tamara de Lempicka’s paintings defined Art Deco and her life epitomized the Jazz Age. The presentation will even include a number of little-known works by the acclaimed artist and exclusive photographs from family albums.

 

In this visually stimulating presentation we'll explore the artist's dazzling talent, striking beauty, irresistible force of personality, and her ability to achieve success on her own terms. This talk will give us an in-depth look at how the refugee of the Russian Revolution conquered 1920s Paris.

 

You won't want to miss Marisa's intimate insight into this fascinating figure of the Jazz Age. She will share Tamara’s own stories, just as the artist related them to rapt audiences during her lifetime, while also incorporating much additional biographical and historical information.

Passion by Design

The Art and Times of Tamara de Lempicka

By

An attractive new hardcover edition of the classic biography of Tamara de Lempicka, whose paintings defined Art Deco and whose life epitomized the Jazz Age

Tamara de Lempicka’s paintings defined Art Deco, and her life epitomized the Jazz Age. Possessed of a dazzling talent, a striking beauty, and an irresistible force of personality, this refugee of the Russian Revolution achieved success on her own terms. She conquered 1920s Paris with her polished portraits of the rich and famous and her coolly erotic nudes, and went on to a glamorous existence in Hollywood, New York, Houston, and Cuernavaca, never putting down her brush.

Passion by Design offers an intimate look at a fascinating figure: these are Tamara’s own stories, just as she related them to rapt audiences. They were compiled and edited just after her death by her daughter Kizette, who wove them into a complete life story, incorporating much additional biographical and historical information.

This new edition of Passion by Design is illustrated with an expanded selection of Tamara’s paintings—including a number of little-known works—as well as exclusive photographs from family albums. A new introduction by Marisa de Lempicka, Tamara’s great-granddaughter, explores the legacy of this trailblazing artist, whose paintings now fetch eight-figure sums and whose style continues to inspire creators in every field.
