About the artwork
“Self-portrait (Tamara in a Green Bugatti) is Tamara Łempicka’s most famous and most reproduced work. It quickly became an iconic effigy of the modern woman of the interwar period.
Tamara Łempicka portrayed herself sitting behind the wheel of a sports car. Her regular facial features, alabaster complexion, and statuesque profile liken the artist to ancient Greek sculptures. This connotation is bolstered by the accumulation of bright, almost monochromatic elements: a flesh-coloured glove, a small, grey-and-beige aviator hat, and a windblown shawl of the same colour covering the artist’s neck. In the painting’s lower part, one can see the shiny, green-and-turquoise signature of the artist, stylised to resemble a modern, geometrised logo. ‘TJL’ letters, framed in a rectangle, are short for ‘Tamara Junosza Lempicka’. Although the artist usually signed her works as ‘de Lempicka’, this time she also used the Junosza coat of arms which belonged to her husband Tadeusz Łempicki.”-Culture P.I.
