Tamara de Lempicka was a Polish painter active in the 1920s and 1930s, who spent her working life in France and the United States. She is best known for her polished Art Deco portraits of aristocrats and the wealthy, and for her highly stylized paintings of nudes.

Her style was a blend of late, refined cubism and the neoclassical style. Lempicka placed high value on working to produce her own fortune, famously saying, 'There are no miracles, there is only what you make.'

I create small studies like In The Middle Of The Summer in preparation for a finished piece or just as visual notes. I often use my small studies to understand the problems involved in rendering subjects and to plan the elements to be used in finished works, such as light, color, form, perspective and composition.

These small studies are exclusively available through my shop and blog. All studies are signed on the reverse.

Shipping takes about two weeks no matter where you live in the world. Price includes shipping and handling. You'll receive your painting safely packaged and ready to frame.
