Tamara de Lempicka: Mistress of Art Deco

Tue 09 Apr, 1:00pm at Red Brick Auditorium

Tickets: £8 , approx running time: 90mins

Tamara de Lempicka dazzled Paris’ art circles in the 1920s and 30s and seduced with her stylish portraits. These heady years saw her immortalise the atmosphere of wealth and decadence of Paris. Other painters oscillated between cubism and Fauvism, but de Lempicka was one of the few to be able to embody the decorative style of Art Deco in her paintings. Stunningly beautiful, she engaged in the worlds of fashion and photography, as well as presenting herself as the quintessential modern, independent young woman. Glamourous and notorious, her extraordinary talent confirmed her reputation as one of the most iconic   painters of her generation.
