Tamara de Lempicka Google Logo

Today on the home page of Google.com is a special Doodle, a Gogole logo, for Tamara de Lempicka, the Polish painter. She spent most of her working career in France and the United States painting portraits of wealthy people. Her style was named Art Deco.

Few artists embodied the exuberant roaring twenties more than Polish artist Tamara de Lempicka. Her fast paced, opulent lifestyle manifests itself perfectly into the stylized Art-Deco subjects she celebrated in her paintings. I first encountered Lempicka's work at her Royal Academy show in London, 2004. I was struck by the scale and skill of her paintings coupled with her life (as colorful as her work!). I chose to place a portrait of Lempicka in my design with accompanying motifs evocative of the roaring '20s and '30s. It's no easy feat to recreate any artists work - but I hope to have done so here.

She was born a 120 years ago today on May 16, 1898 in Warsaw, Poland and died on March 18, 1980 in Cuernavaca, Mexico.
