Lot Essay

Alain Blondel has confirmed the authenticity of this work.

After the death of her husband, Lempicka left New York for Houston to live with her daughter Kizette's family before eventually settling in Cuernavaca, Mexico in 1978, where she bought a villa named Tres Bambus. At that time, the city of Cuernavaca was popular with the international jetsetting elite and favored by Elizabeth Taylor, Barbara Hutton, Gary Cooper, Omar Sharif and the like. In this glamorous city, Lempicka would spend her final years, enriched by her close friendship with the Princess Maria Beatrice di Savoia, the first owner of this work.
