About this Item

A Fine tight copy in a Fine bright dust jacket. De Lempicka, born in Poland in 1898, was married in St. Petersburg in 1916 and the following year was forced to flee the Bolshevik revolution and take residence in Paris. It was there that the young painter began her ascent in the 1920s to make her mark as an artist and ultimately help invent what became the Art Deco school of painting. This comprehensive biography of De Lempicka features a large selection of photographs of the artist and color reproductions of her paintings. Catalog Nog. Bookseller Inventory # 21668
