Tamara De Lempicka: The Queen of the Modern

By Gioia Mori.

The definitive catalog on the first woman artist to become a glamourous star. A cosmopolitan painter and icon of the art deco movement, Tamara de Lempicka created images that became the symbols of an era, the “crazy” 1920s and 1930s. She was possibly that period’s most brilliant exponent.

Driven by an iron will to achieve, Tamara not only cultivated her artistic talent, she also consciously built an image, that of an elegant and sophisticated woman, the extravagant protagonist of the European high life.

Published to mark the exhibition in Rome from March 11-July 3, 2011, the monograph traces the entire career of this fascinating Polish artist who lived in Europe, the United States, and Mexico and catalogs the sum of her works.

Through scrupulous scientific analysis of 120 paintings and works on paper, the publication recreates the artistic atmosphere of the time, suggesting unique parallels and comparisons with contemporary works. It also offers the reader a cross section of the artist’s life, which was filled with glamour but at the same time marked by the great and terrible historic events of the twentieth century.


Gioia Mori holds the chair in art history at the Accademia in Venice and is scientific director of Art e Dossier, one of the most authoritative Italian art journals.
