Like the heroines of our previous project, Lempicka was an immigrant woman who left behind what was familiar to her and conquered the world with her talent, art, and personality. She was a rebel who tested many artistic and societal norms. A member of the 1920s Paris avant-garde scene during the time of Pablo Picasso, Jean Cocteau, and André Gide, she was famous for breaking social norms.
Today, interest in Lempicka’s art is going through a revival. Celebrities such as Jack Nicholson, Barbara Streisand, and Madonna are among Lempicka’s most ardent collectors. Her work is exhibited in museums and galleries worldwide, attracting thousands of visitors. Several recent exhibitions of her work took place in her birth country, Poland. We think Austin will appreciate Lempicka’s story. Her life exemplifies that an independent, creative, and resilient woman can literally conquer the world.View Map
