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.
