Tamara de Lempicka (1898–1980) was a seductive and talented artist who captured the essence of the 1920s on canvas, much like F. Scott Fitzgerald did through his writing. With her Garbo-esque beauty and commanding persona, she achieved great success in Paris, Hollywood, and New York, portraying the rich and famous in stunning Art Deco paintings. Her work led to a life of excess that even surpassed Fitzgerald's wildest dreams.

Passion by Design, written by Tamara de Lempicka's own daughter, provides an intimate glimpse into the captivating personality of the renowned artist. This edition features stunning color reproductions of her most notable paintings and exclusive photos from her family's personal albums. With a new foreword from Marisa de Lempicka, the artist's great-granddaughter, this book delves into the ever-evolving legacy of Tamara de Lempicka, including her recent record-breaking sales and the new musical inspired by her life.
