Tamara De Lempicka was a noted Art Deco painter. She was born into a wealthy and prominent family; her father was a lawyer, her mother, the former Malvina Decler, a socialite. She attended boarding school in Lausanne, Switzerland, and spent the winter of 1911 with her grandmother in Italy and the French Riviera. In 1912 her parents divorced; when her mother remarried, she determined to break away to a life of her own. In 1916 she married a lawyer named Tadeusz Lempicki in St. Petersburg, Russia. De Lempicka lived long enough, however, for the wheel of fashion to turn a full circle: before she died a new generation discovered her art and greeted it with enthusiasm. A 1973 retrospective drew positive responses. At the time of her death, her early Art Deco paintings were being shown and purchased once again. A stage play on her life ran for two years in Los Angeles (1984-6). Jack Nicholson collects her work. In 2005, actress and artist Kara Wilson performed Deco Diva, a one-woman stage play based on de Lempicka’s life.
