Taking a second oil painting class. The assignment was to choose an artist you like and to reproduce a painting with emphasis on the style of the piece.
In my case, I chose Tamara de Lempicka, a Polish painter. She was a socialite and popular artist. She fled Russia during the Bolshevik Revolution and eventually made her way to Paris. De Lempicka worked during the early part of the 20th century and her work is characterized as Art Deco with influences of cubism. She was well-acquainted with other famous artists of the time such as Picasso and Jean Cocteau.
