Bringing together dozens of paintings from both museums and private collections in Europe and the US, this major retrospective of renowned Polish artist Tamara Łempicka (1898-1980) at the National Museum in Kraków is an excellent opportunity to get acquainted with a truly remarkable painter. Born in Warsaw, Łempicka studied in Paris, becoming a socialite in the French capital before moving to the United States at the outbreak of World War II. Her highly stylised and iconic work conveys the society in which it were created, ranging from nudes and portraits of bohemians and beats to financial elites and Hollywood stars. The popularity of her work has grown over the years and is today some of the most recognisable work representing Art Deco. Spanning her career from the 1920s till the 1950s, this popular (and pricey) exhibition presents portraits, still lifes, abstract paintings and nudes, as well as photographic portraits of Łempicka herself, giving visitors a more rounded picture of the artist.
