We already know the opening date of exhibition of Tamara Łempicka's paintings! A piece of information you have been waiting for a long time!

She is known as the Queen of Art Deco. Her paintings achieve dizzying prices at world art auctions. The exhibition entirely devoted to her life entitled “Tamara Łempicka. A Woman en route” will be open in Lublin on March 18 (on the 42nd anniversary of the artist's death) and will be available to visitors until August 14, 2022. Tamara Łempicka, better known as Tamara de Lempicka, was born in Warsaw on May 16, 1898. She was a Polish painter who spent her working life in France and the United States. Known as “The Baroness with a Brush”, she created the image of a modern and independent woman of success. Łempicka became an icon of her time, and her name became recognizable evenly on the Old Continent and in the countries of both Americas. Already as a young girl, Tamara showed an extraordinary artistic talent, quickly becoming proficient in drawing and watercolors. Her life is inextricably linked with travelling, filled with a mixture of romance, an unbridled desire for happiness, intertwined with a constant fear of abandonment, loneliness, as well as war anxiety and wandering around the world. De Lempicka was very clear about who she was and who she yearned to be.

"I was the first woman to paint pictures that were neat, precise and finished and that was the secret to their success. Out of a hundred paintings, it was always possible to recognise mine. And the galleries tended to centre me in their best rooms because my art was attractive to the public."

Those words remain true today with her works attracting thousands of visitors to museums and exhibitions.

She died on March 18, 1980 in Mexico.

The exhibition "Tamara Łempicka - a woman en route" is organised by the National Museum in Lublin and Villa la Fleur in cooperation with Tamara de Lempicka Estate. The project is implemented with the support of the City of Lublin and co-financed by the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage.
