I love (most of) Tamara de Lempicka’s paintings
Until a few minutes ago now, I didn’t notice how her paintings (unconsciously) influences my works.
The clean / defined edges … the folds … the shadows the folds create … and to some extent, the color choices
Here are some more jpeg for comparison purposes.
I find de Lempicka’s sleek, clean, and bold (yet soft) painting style (labelled soft cubism or synthetic cubism) compelling.
I haven’t seen the reproductions or the pictures of her paintings for a very long time. I sure did not think about her paintings as I was creating my hair accessories and necklaces. But the fact that de Lempicka’s aesthetic sense resonates with mine, and that I admire the painting style she invented, is clear enough for most people to see.
