Art Deco Paintings by Tamara de Lempicka

La Dormeuse was painted in 1930. It is a truly unique and attention-grabbing Art Deco painting. De Lempicka's famous paintings of women have consequently become some of the most popular Art Deco paintings of the age.

Tamara de Lempicka's La Dormeuse artwork is a romantic and intimate oil painting. It represents the highly sensual depiction of a sleeping woman, demonstrating Lempicka’s intensely physical inspiration. Every single curve of the woman’s flesh shines with carefully laid brushstrokes. Her hair glows with a metallic sheen as if she is basking in the moonlight. 

La Dormeuse oil painting portrays a young woman with ruby red lipstick and scarlet nail varnish sleeping in a reclined position. Her crimson lips rest against her forearm while her golden hair gently curls around her serene face. Sensual, bold, and ultra-stylized, it’s a highly suggestive and striking oil painting. This metallic atmosphere references paintings by 1920s artists working in Weimar, Germany

What Type of Artist was de Lempicka?

Tamara Lempicka is a renowned Art Deco artist. She gained recognition for her distinctive style of realistic paintings, and her unique style made her famous, respected, and wealthy.

In addition, her oil on canvas paintings revolutionized European art and perceptions of female sensuality. Her Art Deco art reflects the negative aspects of European glamor. It also reflects the growing influence of fascist rationalism between the two world wars.

Born in Poland but raised in St Petersburg, Russia, Lempicka came to Paris in 1918. She cultivated a glamorous artistic persona in France, exhibiting her work in the prestigious Parisian Salon. Tamara de Lempicka's paintings differ from her male contemporaries, who focused on Post-Impressionism and Surrealism. Lempicka’s famous paintings of women are highly controlled, often with a geometric aesthetic.

Tamara de Lempicka used the Cubist movement and Picasso's paintings as inspiration. She often depicts dramatic poses, simplified shapes, and intense lighting.

What inspired her Art Deco paintings?

The hyper-realism of the “Neue Sachlichkeit” or New Objectivity art movement was a profound influence. On a trip to Italy, Tamara de Lempicka discovered famous paintings by Botticelli, Raphael, and Bronzino with her grandmother. Lempicka’s fascination with Italian Renaissance paintings inspired her art deco designs.

Tamara de Lempicka also loved the Mannerist style, particularly admiring these painters and their carefully rendered skin tones and stylized compositions. More contemporary inspirations also came from the mystique of Hollywood glamor. The woman in the painting looks like famous movie stars from the 1930s, like Greta Garbo, Loretta Young, and Claudette Colbert.

Famous Paintings of Women

Tamara de Lempicka frequently depicted strong female nudes in her Art Deco paintings. She returned to this theme throughout her career, most notably with oil on canvas paintings such as 

All of de Lempicka's Art Deco paintings demonstrate the classical characteristics of stylized symmetry and often elongated forms. Art Deco art reached its peak between 1925 and 1935. It references oil paintings, Cubist art, Futurism, and the German Bauhaus art movement. Deco art exploded in Paris in the 1920s, just when Tamara de Lempicka's paintings gained traction.
