About Tamara de Lempicka
Polish born painter and bisexual woman Tamara de Lempicka (1989 – 1980) is famous for her sensual art deco-styled portraits, some of which are overtly lesbian. Her later paintings and still life show a touch of surrealism. She lived in Paris in the 1920′s. In 1939 she and her second husband emigrated to USA, where they lived for the rest of their lives.
I have been looking at the videos and slideshows about Polish artist Tamara de Lempicka (1898-1980) at Youtube. Her famous portraits from 1920 to 1940 can be located within the French art deco school are very popular. – Her later work touches on other traditions, including Surrealism and still life. Lots of people presents her works at Youtube, but the only video clip which caught really my attention is the one below of the auction of one of her paintings in 2009.
If you don’t know the story about the life of bisexual painter Tamara de Lempicka I would suggest that you read the article ‘Lempicka, Tamara de (1898?-1980)’ at www.glbtq.com – an encyclopedia of gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgendered, & queer culture.
