Tamara de Lempicka

The Polish art deco artist Tamara de Lempicka died today in 1980. She said: "I was the first woman to paint cleanly, and that was the basis of my success. From a hundred pictures, mine will always stand out. And so the galleries began to hang my work in their best rooms, always in the middle, because my painting was attractive. It was precise. It was 'finished'."
