Comments Tamara De Lempicka: A Life of Deco and Decadence

  1. An eccentric Art Deco Painter Born into a wealthy Polish family She d party all night, sleep with women, then come home to her husband child, and paint all morning She had a decadent lifestyle Best Biography I ve ever read My favorite Artist.


  2. Tamara de Lempicka is my absolute favourite artist but this book was painfully tedious and boring It could have used some rigorous editing I was repeatedly frustrated by how the author seemed to just decide what Tamara thought or felt about something I found the writing, on the whole, presumptuous, pretentious and even somewhat delusional in parts As much as she tried I don t think the author got her at all.I was so looking forward to this but alas Very disappointing I don t feel like this captu [...]


  3. How could this not be interesting She was an aristocrat in Russia during the revolution, an odd man out in the Left Bank, in America for the stock market crash and then returned to Hollywood in the 1940s Then she became a crazy old woman who mocked hippies and verbally abused her adult daughter I was introduced to her through Camille Paglia s recent art book Glittering Images Unfortunately my library copy had all the illustrations torn out, but thank goodness for the internet.


  4. The problem with this book is that it was billed as a biography It s of an art history book that somewhat focuses on Tamara De Limpicka but Claridge gets a little long winded with 10 pages on the history of Art Deco etc in the middle of narrating Tamara s life and the result is really boring.


  5. Claridge has done her homework here to an astonishing degree The amount of research put into pealing back the layers of time and mystery that have surrounded the life of one of the 20th century s most fascinating painters is incredible This book should be on the shelf of any Lempicka fan if for no other reason than it debunks the most popular myths of the others books by so called scholars littering the same shelf left and right.The writing in this is incredibly dense There s just so much materi [...]


  6. A very enjoyable book.Like her book on Emily Post, she looks at than just the artist she is writing about, she also looks at the world at large that helped shape them and vice versa I was aware of this artist work, but never new her name I only read this book based on the strength of the authors work on the Emily Post one.Tamra De Lempicka was a fascinating woman, a highly talented artist whose personal life sabotaged her professional and critical opportunities.But rather than arguing that she [...]


  7. De Lempicka s work is extraordinary her life wildly artistic The sky high prices attached to her canvases in recent years have still not dispelled the suspicions that a woman of Lempicka s glamour and fame could be a truly serious artist Really Does the same criteria apply to Picasso She sic was determined to embody that icon of the age, the new woman I sort of thought she was one.Question What is a biographer s responsibility to her subject I m reminded of the line from the movie Practical Magi [...]


  8. Tamara de Lempicka could ve painted sewage ducts and given me a boner.She also had a really interesting life I d love to read this.


  9. A very good book to do hommage to this outstanding artist without glorifying her An excentric femme fatale, especially fascinating in the times of her limelight, les annes folles Art Deco She lived what she painted beauty, sensuality, decadence.



  10. What a fantastic reminder that we re all on the verge of being stark raving mad Also, made me terribly thankful to be a woman living in the west in 2013 and not in 1920.




  11. A very interesting book that gave me a lot of information about Tamara de Lempicka that I wasn t able to find elsewhere I wish there were books like this.
