ABOUT THE ARTWORK

In Portrait of Ira Perrot, an elegantly dressed modern Flapper, in a white satin dress, has a shorn Bob. She holds a bouquet of impossibly large calla lilies. Painted in Art Deco style by Tamara de Lempicka, (1898-1980) the subject in the work was her good friend and lover. The flowers were the favourite of the artist.
