First Night Design | Tamara De Lempicka [1898 – 1980] #Re-post


Edited and updated 16 May 2018

At the beginning of February, I talked about cutting back on posting and visiting for the sake of my health. The times I’ve had for myself as well as family and friends since have been beautifully beneficial. On the other hand, it has and remains a lot easier to update First Night History and Rogues & Vagabonds since I’m either reblogging or transferring from the original R&V.

In the meantime, I have several works in progress but no pieces ready to display, let alone sell so here’s a re-post about the work of one of my favourite artists, whose 120th birthday is 16 May!

Sharing Secrets, 1928 Tamara De Lempicka is an artist whose work I wish was in the public domain so that I could sell it at First Night Vintage.  Alas, she died in 1980 so unless my business becomes a worldwide success in the near future (stranger things have happened!), I cannot afford to licence any of the images…

  1. I see I ‘liked’ the original, so no idea why I didn’t comment. I ADORE Tamara’s work. One of my all-time favourites, and I have a couple of prints of her portraits. I would struggle to put anyone above her, except Rembrandt, and Vermeer.
    Best wishes, Pete. x

  2. Her work is stunning! I’ve seen her work before, but couldn’t remember her name, nor did I know anything about her. Thanks for sharing a mini bio.

    And so glad to hear you’re doing better! That is happy news indeed.
