Figure henceforth legendary of Art Déco, portraitist fashionable of the high society between the two world wars, Tamara de Lempicka is a painter except standards, except schools, whose universal images are today reproduced and copied everywhere. The Museum of the Thirties of Boulogne organizes finally the first great retrospective devoted to this aristocrat of the painting, gathering more than 50 of its paintings. To handle the event, the organizers of the exhibition also reconstituted the interior of the famous Parisian studio of Lempicka. After being famous in Paris New York of the turbid and insane years, the artist dies in a semi anonymity in 1980.  Its romantic life follows the meanders of this agitated twentieth century:  Born in 1898 in Poland, she marries at 18 years with the Count de Lempicki of which she will leave an imposing portrait, then leaves Russia for Paris when the revolution of October sets fire to the bourgeoisie.  She will again leave Paris for New York with its second husband, the baron Paul Kuffner.  The essence of her work, her major artistic signature, is during this Parisian time, between 1925 and 1940.  Her portraits with the geometry's cubists but nevertheless figurative carry an alive, bubbling, rare dynamics almost in the history of the portrait of art.  The subjects often give the impression which they are with narrow in the painting, that they wish to escape.  Her masters, Maurice Denis and especially, Andre Lhôte, will definitively inculcate the taste of this style to her which she will achieve until the perfection.  After the second world war, Art déco is not any more sails about it, Tamara turns to more mystical or more simple subjects, landscapes, natures died, which will not be any success.  It will have to be waited until 1972 so that a Parisian gallery re-born the diva of interval wars through her principal masterpieces.  The universal homage does not delay.  Completed today by this official retrospective.
