Lempicka — is the name of her husband. The noble "de" — fiction. And Tamara — alias. By birth she is Maria B. Gurvich-Гурская. Born into a Jewish family in Warsaw at the time when Poland was part of Russian Empire. The child arrived in Moscow for 12 years, moved to St. Petersburg, to cousin. There, in the capital of Russia, married, gave birth to a daughter. And in 1919-м, miraculously rescue her husband from prison, managed to escape with his family to France. Lempicka was one of those women who confidently took their destiny in their own hands. Paris, lack of money forced her to remember what she loved and what life subconsciously wanted — to do art. Her teachers of painting became a Lot Andre and Maurice Denis. And in the early 1920-х Lempicka found their own unique style, a variation of the ar-деко that Lot was called "soft cubism". Orders for portraits gave her a long-awaited financial independence. The artist ran in Bohemian circles, she had three (or so) of her husband, countless men and women. Model in scarlet tunic — is the Muse and lover of the artist, the same Raffaele who posed Nude for a calling "Beautiful Rafaella" in 1927. Before the war, Lempicka moved from France to the United States. "Soft cubism" soon gave way to abstract expressionism. Not to say that overseas, she has gained noticeable fame. Earned custom portraits, as in 1920-х in France. A new round of recognition received, when she was 70. She lived a long life, almost 82 years old. Grandchildren, exhibition, vivid memories.
