    Either this was a book of complete genius or the author had lost the plot for most of it I don't know but either way it was an enjoyable speedy look at the life and work of this wonderful strange and hugely talented artist

    35 starsCoffee table book mostly pictures of and by Tamara de Lempicka Gives a brief overview of her life and works at times felt it veered between being sycophantic and patronising Good visually though

    Taschen art books are always such nice uality Although this is pretty small it has many good reproductions The textwell like so many art books it's strange blather for a lot of it Towards the end it settles down and becomes biographical

    A begrudging 3 starsTamara de Lempicka's Art Deco art was Fabulous and she was uite the character according to the book Too bad the narrative style is a mess but I will forgive it a bit because its author is a native French speaker Still it just keeps missing the marks IMOP Then again I guess I am just a plebeian schmuck but I can live with thatGoing to have to find a better biographyHave to agree with her critics though her attempt to reinvent herself in the '60s was awful she certainly had technical skill but the soul was missing

    An informative read on Lempicka’s cubist neoclassical compromise not to mention a pearl clutcher I never knew that the zaftig model behind Beautiful Rafaela was Lempicka’s lover Or that she staged a literal nude model open casting on UCLA’s campus for Susanna in the Bath However the Baron’s fate is loose thread in this book length essay I wanted to read Nerét’s words on Myrto Two Women on a Couch Lempicka’s post coital self portrait that the Baron a devoted patron purchased and was subseuently stolen by Nazis during the ascent of WWII

    I got this book thinking that with these society portraits from the years between the wars the artist must have had stories to tell she certainly did But she hid them before they got out So according to this book very little detail remains about her lifeWe get a summary and an aesthetic overview The author proposes that De Lempicka was essentially an aesthete; style was all She was mercenary knowing that the money didn't want true art The rich didn't want to think but to simply but into a bit of culture So De Lempick essentially adopted a pseudo or post cubist angularity with some elements of monumental realism as portrayed in fascist and communist art These paintings are ideals but only at the surfaceAll of which makes the artist even intriguing and enigmatic

    Beautiful in terms of design and of course illustrations but the text vacillates between pompousness and prurience

    Wonderful artwork terrible textSpends time tabulating her lovers and suitors than on her work

    Rating for the illustrations; the text is a mess

    This book is very descriptive and the pictures are well set out and beautifully presented I enjoyed learning about her and discovering a new artist that I enjoy immensely
