Tamara de Lempicka (Lempicka)
(May 16, 1898 - March 18, 1980),
born Maria Górska in Warsaw, in partitioned Poland
was a Polish Art Deco painter and "the first woman
artist to be a glamour star. She was born in Poland
and moved to Russia where she lived until the
Bolsheviks arrested her husband during the Russian
Revolution. She secured his release and they fled to Paris.
There she enrolled at the Academie de la Grand Chaumiere
and studying privately. She was quite a prolific artist
(in part facilitated by her spare simple style) and
was much sought after as a portrait artist.
