The Guillotine: Twentieth-Century Classics That Won't Last No 34: Andy Warhol

Tamara de Lempicka was born in Poland at the turn of the century, was married in St Petersburg in 1916, fled the Bolshevik revolution the following year and eventually fetched up, like many of her affluent Bohemian caste, in Paris. There she devoted herself to painting, in a glamorously metallic, naggingly memorable style, the city's literati, glitterati and twitterati. Described by one critic as "the perverse Ingres of the Machine Age", she was rewarded with fame, acclaim, a vast personal fortune and, 30 years later, almost total neglect - followed, in the 1980s and 1990s, by a belatedly revived interest in her as a petit-maitre (or petite-maitresse?) of art deco.
