Art Deco The SlaveRegular price € 15
"The Slave" reproduction of Tamara de Lempicka's museum masterpiece, 1933
Tamara de Lempicka was a Polish-born painter active in Paris and the U.S. in the 1920s and 30s. She was born Tamara Gorska in Warsaw to wealthy family, and fled to Paris during the 1917 Russian Revolution. In 1916 she married Tadeusz Lempicki, a Russian lawyer and socialite, which initiated a lifestyle that would inform her body of work. While living in the French capitol throughout the 1920s, she became an integral part of the bohemian scene and was acquainted with Pablo Picasso, Jean Cocteau and André Gide.
Her subject matter consisted of portraits, erotic nudes, and still lifes of calla lilies. She received considerable acclaim for her oeuvre, and became a social celebrity, famed for her aloof attitude, her lavish parties, and her love affairs with both women and men. In 1939 she moved to the U.S. with her second husband, Baron Raoul Huffner, recreating her artistic and social success in Hollywood and New York. Today, her work is collected by many celebrities, including Madonna, Jack Nicholson, and Barbara Streisand. Lempicka died on March 18, 1980 in Cuernavaca, Mexico.
Judging from the background to this beautiful and promising chained "slave", it is hard to believe that a sultan was responsible for her rapt. Upon examination of a photo of Lempicka, critics came up with an interesting suggestion with respect to - what we are made to believe - is a self-portrait: that it represents the muted complaint of a wife fettered by marriage chains, from which she awaits deliverance.
